    I bought the same RAM. Mine was $206 with shipping and everything. What made you decide to go with the G.Skill RAM? Its the cheapest I could find. It has a lifetime warranty, and the reviewers seem happy, but geez, its $25-$65 less for each than the competition. I want to get a foof sleeve, and I dont think Ill be getting a shield. My MacBook is supposed to arrive on Wednesday, and my Wallet is crying too. Congratulations.

    i think i reccomended the g.skill to him, i use that too. g.skill is a good known brand, and it was cheap. also almost all of the reviews(105) on newegg are for macbooks(pro) or intel mini, which is all the same really

    Just got back to the apple store and got my MacBook !!!!! Comes with a free HP printer/scanner. Cost me $1364. With a 100$ mail in rebate. So I paid 1264 for a macbook and a printer. My stats: 2GHZ, 512 RAM (Upgrading to 2GB, already ordered), 60GB HD. i feel happier than a 5 year old who met santa clause xD
