    Could you post links to the vendor and RAM modules you purchased? I wanna buy 2x1GB, preferably corsair or crucial. I just don't wanna order 2GB ram and find that they don't work with my MBP. Thank you! :wiggle:

    Oh, and ~$200 price point for both would be great as well :)

    Thanks a lot! I've heard good things about them - I just ordered 2x1gb sticks from them :bigthumb: Hopefully I notice a decent boost in performance, specifically when running Parallels. :x:

    IMO they are the best aftermarket place to work with in regards to macs. I ordered a superdrive upgrade for my mac mini, and they were out of stock on it (only like one day backordered), but they overnighted it to me when they go some more, so even though they were out of stock, I still received my order on time.

    I purchased my RAM (2x1GB Corsair) from a local Fry's store (huge electronics retailer). I had problems with the first sticks I picked up and found my MBP ramdomly rebooting under intensive applications. The second sticks have been flawless.

    Having to go back to 512MB for a couple days killed me, the 2GB upgrade will make a huge and very noticeable difference in your laptop.

    I like to order from http://www.zipzoomfly.com/. They've always served me well for my hardware needs. Within the past few weeks I got a new imac and I ordered 2GB corsair from zipzoomfly for $180 total.

    Core Duo + 2GB rocks.

    what's the general consensus on Corsair memory? Is it hit or miss, or is it pretty much guaranteed to work?

    I got Corsair Value RAM, 1 GB DIM PC5300 667mhz for $86 + $5 shipping on newegg.com. And I spent $5 at the drug store on a mini screwdriver kit to install it. Used a tiny flathead.
