I have a White macbook mid 2010 onward 2.4ghz intel core 2 duo with 2 gb ram. I want to upgrade my Ram to the maximum possible (4gb), does anyone know a reliable and decently priced play to buy the memory?

Also if i dont buy it from the apple store and i took my macbook and the memory into the store, would they fit it for me?

Cheers

I just bought some for my 13" MacBook. I found the best prices on Amazon.com & Newegg.com. I was able to replace it with a few minutes. All you need it a really small screw driver (size zero). Look up YouTube videos on how to replace it. Trust me, it's really simple.

Try here - I bought NuRAM from them and it has been working great. Plus they show you what will work in your Mac - so you can search for better prices if you choose.
Apple Mac Memory Upgrade Options: Easy Buying Guide, Free Install Videos. Memory backed by Lifetime Advance Replacement Warranty.
Usually most RAM works but Macs can be finicky so it is always best to get Mac specific RAM or buy from a place with a good return policy.

In the US, Other World Computing (macsales.com) has a stellar reputation. In Canada, I recommend CanadaRAM.com.

Neither is always the absolute cheapest, but they are both Mac-knowledgable, great service and stand behind their stuff -- the very qualities people SAY they want, but then they go to Wal-Mart anyway because its a buck or two cheaper. Sigh.

OWC ships to the UK, Australia, Canada, and many other countries, however, it's probably best to buy the memory locally in the event you have to return it.

In that case go to Crucial. Download there RAM Scanner and they will suggest what RAM you can fit.

Sorry I didn't notice you were in Scotland. Crucial is an excellent choice for those in the UK.

Thanks for all the help people!
