Hi guys,
i am about to upgrade my MB from 1gb to 2x2gb and have found what seems to be a cheaper and identical alternative to the apple recommended ram, i would very much appreciate any clues as to compatibility, as i have decided to go for the max ram available for my mid 2007 macbook...
thanks.

the module cat no. is Kvr667d2s5k2/4g

and its from: Kingston 4GB 667MHz DDR2 Non-ECC CL5 SODIMM (Kit of 2) KVR667D2S5K2/4G - We Are Electricals

cheers.

That should work. Apple loves to tell you that you need to use their memory, but any brand will work, as long as it is the right type.

thanks for the reply.... this is my dilemma, have few clued up appleheads who all say compatibility is key ,so am dubious about the afore mentioned ram, have already gone for crucial 2x1gb @ 22 in the hope this is enough to run logic on 10.6 smoothly... regards J.

i have just done the same thing last week from crucial 2x 2gb SDD2, makes a real difference. if you can afford it, go for the 2 x 2gb rather than 2 x 1gb. the price difference is only approx 10 GBP

yes i may well do that, my mB max's out at 3gb (3.3) so will lose a gig, i have only had trouble since upgrading to 10.6, so i hope 2x1 gb will be enough....thanks for the input.
