    I've been looking over the RAM options for my Macbook Pro. I've read about problems with third party RAM, so I'd like to not make any mistakes when buying. I want to replace the original 2 GB and install 4 GB of ram.

    I've narrowed it down between Mushkin's 4 GB set:

    Or by ordering two iRam 2 GB sticks:

    Anyone have any recommendations? it looks like iRam actually tests their memory in Macs before they ship them. (Unless all memory companies do that, I don't know)

    Any help/suggestions would be appreciated!

    Apple's price for 4 GB of RAM for my Macbook Pro is $300. That is not acceptable. Everyone else is around $100.

    I received the 4GB with my Macbook Pro, but with all the reports of problems with third party ram I would have just purchased it from Apple anyway. :D
