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

lol yeah ^ he did reccomend it to me, and also mines was 206 as well to be exact. but thanks. im planning to get my mac straight from the store, because I don't plan to customize anything really since im gonna upgrade everything with aftermarket products.
