    I will buy a MacBook Pro this year - I'm sure of it.

    But to save myself the £120 it costs Apple to upgrade from 2x 1GB sticks to 2x 2GB, I've decided to buy RAM from a 3rd party seller.

    However - I don't know what I'm looking for, what's compatible, and which companies give bigger and better boosts.

    Am I looking for Intel Memory or NVDIA, or doesn't it make a difference?

    So I'd like to just ask you guys and get a database of sites I can use for the future. (USA sites too if they ship Internationally - Because that'll be a lot cheaper)

    Thanks

    Get RAM from Crucial. They're quite cheap, 67 bucks for 4 GB of RAM. They even have something you can use to make sure you get the right RAM.

    67 bucks?!
    That's like £30! lol!

    Thanks - I'll look now.

    EDIT: Yeah the $67 one is DDR2. The DDR3 I found was £80 though which is still better than £120
