I am thinking about upgrading my RAM from the current 2GB I have. I've had a wee scout around but thought I'd check in here (as I normally do) for some good advice.

Has anyone used a G.Skill upgrade.I'm looking at this model: 4GB G.Skill DDR2 667MHz Apple Series laptop memory kit PC2-5300 2x2GB (CL5). It'll be about 55 ($55 in the States I think).

I think I'm going down the right track here but am just looking for some confirmation!

Cheers

I've just tried the link from the banner at the top of the MacForums screen to Crucial. They have a compatible 4Gb memory for £43. Anyone had any good or bad experiences with Crucial?

Agree, Crucial is one of the best. You can also take a look at what OWC has to offer. My understanding is they will also ship outside the US. Link

Regards.
