You might have wondered how to get more RAM on your mac. You can replace it yourself, but you need to be careful where you buy it from.
In case you haven’t yet realised, Apple Memory is different to normal PC RAM, so if you go to a cheap PC shop or ebay and buy some memory it probably won’t work in your Apple computer. Here’s a reliable place I have found to buy RAM that works well in your Macintosh.It’s not that you need ‘Apple’ memory, but you do need high quality RAM with certain specifications that are not obvious so you need to buy from someone who knows the differences. You can buy RAM that is the right speed (eg 667 MhZ DDR2 FB-DIMM etc) but it still won’t work.
If you can recommend a good reliable MAC RAM supplier leave the details in a comment below!
After much trial I have found a very reliable source of Mac RAM to be ‘Crucial’. (Crucial is the name of the shop!)
Check them out at Crucial.com They even have a little program here that you can download and it works out what computer you have and then pops you onto their webpage on the page showing the memory you need to buy!
Their prices are very good too. For example 1Gig of RAM For my 1.67 Ghz PowerBook was only $49 US and shipping to Australia was only $25.
Note (Jan 2013): I have signed up as a Crucial affiliate partner.
