Hi!

I have a Apple MacBook 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (13-inch Black) with 2GB RAM. I am thinking of upgrading the RAM to 4GB as I feel that for 35 bucks (AR) for 4 GB is a pretty good deal (based on the link posted in one of the threads here) considering that apple charges 200 dollars for the same. Can someone please tell me if this memory will work in MacBook? And how are Kingston's memory products?

Thanks.

Thanks for the response, but another question:

Apple site and crucial.com mention that the RAM that goes in MacBook is

4GB 667MHz DDR2 (PC2-5300) - 2x2GB SO-DIMMs

whereas Fry's one is

4GB DDR2 PC5300 DUAL SO-DIMM.

Notice that Fry's one only says PC-5300 while Apple site says PC2-5300. What is the difference between PC2-5300 and PC-5300?

Thank.s

I don't think that there is a difference. It's a typo.

Even if it's not a typo, doesn't make much of a difference to me. $35 bucks
