Hey, I have only 2gigs of ram now. I want to upgrade to 4.

I snooped around newegg and crucial.com and have got to say that I am quite lost.

Which one should I go for? I'm only looking to spend like $100+-ish, nothing too fancy, just something OEM-ish quality I guess if it's cheaper. anything less is unacceptable.

Also I don't want to open up my new laptop so do you think the people at the Apple store will install it for me under warranty even if I order the sticks separately online?

please&thankyou!

Performance Upgrades; FireWire USB SATA Storage; Memory, more at OWC

$109.99 for 4GB. RAM replacement involves hardly any work, it's designed to be user replaced.

If you get stuck at all have another look at the OWC site. It has installation videos covering memory and hard drive upgrades for the current Mac models.
