    Upgrading RaM outside of Apple
    hello, im new to the MaC so im still learning. I got the regular macbook with 1gb of RAM but i wanted to upgrade to 2gb of RAM. I've seen other sites selling RAM that i can install myself, but how good of RAM is it?
    Does apple use better RAM or such?

    No. They just charge more..
    I go thru OWC. Never had a problem with them and they have a lifetime warranty. You'll get a better deal going elsewhere. And it's very easy to install.

    I also recommend Crucial.com (not that I have anything against OWC). Great service and fast shipping, very competitive prices for top shelf memory.

    Also note that as a user-upgradeable part, it will not void your warranty to install your own memory.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    just to add another option you can try www.newegg.com great prices with reviews on all the products. apple is way over priced on their RAM for no reason and you're not going to have many problems with RAM that doesn't come from apple.
