    "Best" is pretty subjective. Memory is pretty much a commodity, so for the most part, I recommend sticking with vendors who specifically guarantee compatibility.

    I recommend Crucial ( and
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    I bought 8gb of NuRam from OWC - because cost was an object. That being said the RAM has been working great. I am able to run 2 Virtual Machines (1 linux, 1 windows) without going into too much swap (maybe 1 gb)

    They have a lifetime warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.
    They also have a rebate for your old ram - if you aren't going to do anything with it

    I had looked at Crucial - and that is who I normally use when building a machine - but with the price and warranty I went with the NuRam for the Mac.
