Ram
 
OK, I saw this posted in another thread. I was curious if anyone has purchased sticks from this site and if this link is what I need for my macbook?

Appreciate the input.

newegg.com is my absolute favorite on-line source for computer components. Excellent prices, fast and friendly service.

And according to this document on Apple's site, the memory you found is correct.

thanks again cari...

That's the exact model I ordered for my Macbook. It took 5 minutes to install and the computer has been flying ever since. I highly recommend both G.skill and Newegg :black:

I bought the MacBook with its original 1 GB RAM. So If I need to upgrade to 2GB do I need to buy one or two 1GB RAM? cheers ...

More than likely you have two 512 sticks of ram, so you'll have to buy two 1 GB sticks... check under system profile

Thanks for this assurance. I bought my MacBook in the US when I was there last December but thought now of upgrading the memory to 2GB. I have to make sure that when I have the RAMs ordered that it is really compatible and will work well with the MacBook because I am in New Zealand.

I was running fine with 1GB. But it's really flying now with 2GB running MacOS and XP at the same time. The RAM I got on newegg.com is the Kingston so I can't speak for the G.skill. From the reviews it looks like you're making a safe bet.

PLEASE IGNORE. THIS GOT REPOSTED TWICE. I THOUGHT THE OTHER ONE DIDN'T GO. SORRY.

I think everybody here would highly recommend newegg, it's very reliable. I bought my ram from there and had an excellent buying experience. I didn't buy that brand though so can't review on that. Good luck!

I am most likely going to buy a macbook soon. I am wondering what peoples opinion on whether I should buy a macbook direct from apple store with 2gb of ram, or buy ram similar to this and install it myself. I've seen a video of someone getting to the ram in a macbook and it looks pretty simple.

Kash 04-27-2007 11:31 PM

You should definitely buy and install the RAM yourself as you will save A LOT of money this way. Apple charges a ridiculous premium to upgrade your system from 1GB to 2GB. If possible, get your system with 512MB of RAM (I think this option is only available on the cheapest model) and then upgrade to save even more money.

Like I said in my earlier post, it took me just 5 minutes to do the upgrade. For an inexperienced person, it would probably only take 10 minutes

buttuh 04-27-2007 11:49 PM

Since doing it yourself doesn't void Apple's warranty I'd go for it. Unless money is no object.
