    Currently I have a Macbook 2.0ghz Intel core duo with only the original 512 MB RAM, BUS speed 667Mhz. I am looking to upgrade my memory as I would like to speed things up as it has been slowing as of late. It works fine as far as the sytem goes and I really do not have any trouble with anything just looking to add some more memory. Now the question I have been looking for Memory and obviously from apple it's a bit pricey, but when I look otherplaces it just gets to damn confusing. Can anyone please recommend a site that is worthy of ordering from and also I am unsure of the exact RAM that I should be ordering I have 2 slots up to 2GB. What are the proper requirements I should look for?

    Just visit Crucial.com and use their memory advisor tool to locate and buy the proper RAM.

    It's that easy. :)

    You may find [guide]Understanding Intel Mac RAM[/guide] useful.

    But the other posts are sensible, except that its not PCS-5300 its PC2-5300 or PC-5300 (they are the same).

    You also need a 200 pin SODIMM rather than a 240 pin DIMM.

    I just bought my ram from crucial.com. Its great ram, great value and a well-known company, therefore you getting great support in case anything goes wrong. I bought a 2GB stick for 75$ + free shipping. I highly recommend it. If you want from other brands and cheaper, visit macsales.com or macmall.com. They offer great ram sticks as well.

    My mistake, you're totally right. It's PC2-5300 you're going for...

    To the OP, here's a link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231116

    SO-DIMM is for notebook memory

    SDRAM is synchronous dynamic random access memory which is what all desktop's and notebooks pretty much use today
