    I have recently purchased a new MacBook, and was looking to upgrade it's RAM to 2GB. Does anyone recommend a particular type of RAM?

    Also, I live in the UK, so does anyone recommend a good place to buy? (Online or otherwise).

    Apple are currently charging £350.

    Installed the Datamem 2GB matched pair yesterday - worked flawlessly in my black MB.

    Edit: realized you're not in the US. Sorry. Not sure if they do international.

    Not sure on their prices for MacBook RAM or if they ship outside the US, but I just got a 1GB stick from OWC for ~$100 earlier this week for my final revision powerbook. The same RAM was selling for ~$150 or more from other sites like Crucial.

    I installed it 2 nights ago and it's working great - No problems...

    I'm currently used 2 x 1gb sticks of G.Skill memory in my MBP and it's completely awesome. It didn't give me a lick of trouble when I upgraded it and now my MBP is running speedy as ever and can multi-task with the best of 'em.

    The G.Skill that I purchased was bought from Newegg at $81.99 / stick. Now I don't know if you can find this memory in the UK, and if you can the price will probably be a tad higher but if it's like here in the states, the G.Skill is the least expensive RAM you can buy for the MacBook (AFAIK).

    Hope that helps a bit mate!
