    A lot of people say that. But from what I understand their is ram that's made cheap and ram that's quality. So ram is not ram.

    Which, if you read me correctly, I mentioned, and I quote: with a reputable brand that has a good warranty.

    Memory is made by Hynix or Samsung anyway... and I think Micron.

    NuRam as well as OWC branded ram both give you lifetime warranty.
    Just get the cheapest NuRam, and ship them your ram that you'll be replacing, OWC will send you a rebate up to $50.
    Not sure if you're aware that after the rebate your 8GB NuRam will be about $119.

    OWC has been a good source for me in the past. I would also say I have received quite a few recommendations for the WD Scorpio Black drive. I am about to get either the 320GB or the 500GB. 5400 RPM doesn't keep my with my music recordings.

    Went with the G-Skill because I'm keeping my old ram just in case I have to deal with Apple.

    Again, replacing the RAM and HDD with aftermarket ones DOES NOT VOID YOUR WARRANTY.

    Just a reminder. :rolleyes:

    But it doesnt prevent Apple from returning the box from a service call with a sticky slapped on the top that says:

    That is VERY likely factually incorrect as Apple wouldn't use ghetto English in a response to a customer.

    You got me excited....lol you should clarify this rebate is only if you send back your current 4 gig setup. Folks like me who have a 2 gig set up get next to nothing lol
