    I don't kow how cheap you want to go, but I used the Crucial Memory Advisor to help me pick the right RAM for my machine. It works perfectly.

    I've found that 'Orca Logic' normally does the cheapest RAM. The RAM comes with a lifetime warranty and is usually a lot cheaper than 'Crucial', however on this occasion it seems that 'Crucial'' are cheaper.

    Thanks for the quick replying guys, im looking at both sites atm, although i wish they were equal to the low pices in the states, i think i should plan a 2 week trip every year to buy everything i need from america, lol

    Unfortunately, you would be stung for import duty (unless you can get away with it of course). You also need to remember that the prices shown are not including state tax, so they are not quite as cheap as they seem)

    Oh well, anyway regardless of that i found the cheapest at www.Offtek.com, i checked here because they do all things memory and ive been buying memory cards for my camera there for years and theyve always been cheap by miles for that. heres the macbook ram (in the list of laptops they have listed a Macbook 15" 2.16ghz intel cor duo twice, i could find the core 2 duo so im guessing they made a typo and that why there are 2) theyre the same ram anyway
