    I'm doing research now for when I buy my Macbook in a few week, and I know I am going to upgrade to 2Gig.

    I know I need 2 1Gig (200-pin PC2-5300 DDR2 667 MHz Type RAM) sticks, but they range in price fron $75-$120... what brands should I look at and stay away from...

    Basically I want the best I can get at a reasonable price... So far I an looking at newegg and CDW, unless you know of anywhere better...

    thanks...

    I highly recommend Corsair or Crucial. For years I have used their stuff and I've never had a single problem with their products. They are more expensive than some stuff you can get, but you get a very high quality product.

    In my new MacBook I wanted to upgrade the RAM from the get go and didn't plan ahead to order it online (silly me). I went with Patriot memory from Fry's and have had no complaints. Patriot is cheaper than Corsair or Crucial but they're also a newer player.
