    Ok apple sad it will cost me 100$ to upgrade to 4GB of RAM, i thought that was a bit expensive and decided to do it myself, can someone give me a link to the proper RAM to work for my mac??


    A link on amazon please?? i looked and am not sure 100% which one would work, could you give me a link to a 4GB module and an 8GB module, thanks! (will it go up to 8??)

    Instead of Amazon...how about one of these guys (both great places, and easy to figure what ram you need):

    Specs:

    I'll 2nd Nick's suggestion and I buy a lot of stuff from Amazon also. If you're not familiar with RAM and the brands, head on over to OWC. Shipping is about as fast as Amazon, customer service along with it, with a phone number where you can talk to real human being if needed.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
