Hello there,

I am using an early 2008 MacBook Pro and I would like to upgrade the RAM from 2GB to something better, maybe 4GB or 6GB (if possible).

Which brand of RAM do you recommend? I don't want to buy it from Apple in Egypt as the 4GB is way over priced. I guess I'll be buying the RAM online and getting it shipped.

I might upgrade to a whole new MacBook Pro in Christmas if I go to New York, but in the mean time, I'd like better RAM as 2GB isn't good for gaming.

Thank you very much!

Here is the MacBook(pro) ram section, just select the model you have (either unibody or not) and then what amount you want.

MacBook, MacBook Pro Memory, Hard Drive Upgrades. Free Installation Videos and Guide online make it easy for anyone! Options for up to 8GB of RAM, 1TB HD, 480GB SSD

Thank you for the link.

I found those:

4.0GB PC-5300 DDR2 667MHz SO-DIMM 200... (OWC5300DDR2S4GB) at OWC
4.0GB Kit (2.0GB+2.0GB) PC2-5300 DDR2 667... (53IM2DDR4GBK) at OWC
4.0GB Kit (2.0GB+2.0GB) PC2-5300 DDR2 667... (53C4DDR2P4GB) at OWC

The price difference isn't major, but I'd like to know what the difference between a kit and a single RAM is? I mean I know the kit is 2GB x 2 but is there a difference in performance? Thank you.
