I was just looking at the Crucial website and it seems that they are selling the same 1GB Memory chip that Apple sells for less. Is this correct and if so why are Apple selling for so much more???

Apple consistantly charges more for its memory than other sources. There's no real reason for it and no reason to buy from them.

Crucial is a well-respected supplier over here. It should work fine. In reality, any reputable memory like Crucial, Kingston etc will work fine as long as it's in specs.
