    hey guys,

    So im planning on upgrading my Macbook memory to at least 2gbs. I'd just like to know which brand i should go with? and/or does brand really matter? Should i try to hunt for the cheapest price i can find? or go with the old saying 'you get what you pay for'?

    Current looking at two deals:

    Cheapest one i could find with a 5min search:

    Went to the Crucial site, cuz ive heard its a reliable site:

    I hate to be the one to say this, but do a search. This has been covered so much lately. I personally went with Crucial for my RAM because I've had it before and trust the company.

    most of the major RAM brands will be fine. Crucial, Kingston, Corsair, etc.

    What seems to be most important is warranty. All ram of the same specs should run the same.

    while I went with Crucial for my RAM... OWC (otherworldcomputing.com) is also a good company.
