    I am in between two brands for a RAM upgrade in my Macbook. The two brands are Crucial and Kingston. I'm wondering if anyone has had experience with these companies RAM and if anyone has recommendations to which one I should purchase. Thanks :)

    They are both good. I however only tried OWC RAM on both my machines and have had no problems.

    Both are good but overpriced. OWC sells good RAM but their prices are better

    I've just upgraded today to 4GB, I can see the difference. Crucial, very fast delivery.

    Now I wonder if I should upgrade to Snow Leopard, its not expensive, but is there any advantage ? I opened a topic here.

    I purchased a 4GB upgrade from crucial and received it in 3 days with no problems. Didn't pay too much, around $100 for a two DIMM kit. Can definitely see a performance increase.
