I am keen to upgrade the memory in my MacBook as much as possible.

Does anyone have experience using non-apple supplied memory. Any suggestions for dealers appreciated.

I've mostly used OWC (, but has a relatively good reputation and is cheaper right now.

I buy most of my upgrades (for Mac and PC) from newegg.

This seems to be working very well in the MacBooks:

And it's less than $165 for 2GB. :black:

I've been using newegg also. They usually have good sales on their RAM. I got two of these 1GB sticks for $150 when they were on sale.

I had used kingston ram no problems in the past. Make sure you get the part listing from their website but be sure you use pairs for dual channel.
