So I had a bad experience with a memory upgrade before with my MBP. When it was repaired the note that came back said that the problem I was having was due to unsupported ram being installed in the laptop. Anyway, could anyone recommend some stable memory for a MBP of the core duo kind? I want to get a couple 1 gig sticks so I can get a total of 2 gigs running. I currently have 512MB of ddr2 667 installed. Thanks!

I found this deal, it looks pretty legit. If anyone has any experience with this memory in their MPB let me know.

I tend to get memory from Other World Computing.

I have a macbook pro 15" 2.6 ghz and I'm also looking to upgrade my ram (from 2 to 4 gb)...
I cam across this one:

The CAS rating is 5 .... Are there compatible RAM chips with lower CAS #s?
