Here's an example at Newegg:

This is the same memory I bought - it's a first class brand and an excellent price. But just look on Newegg for other brands - as Strukt said, must br SO-DIMM/ You can go to PC6400 if you want faster.

Here are others, 2 pages, look carefully, some are not SO-DIMM:

I've got 2 x 2gb sticks of Muskin RAM in my MB and haven't had any problems with it.

I have just installed 2 x 2Gb of Kingston RAM - about £60 in the UK, and it seems to be working fine.
