RAM for Macbook Pro
 
I'm looking to upgrade my Macbook Pro from 2GB to 4GB of RAM. Now, since it's got two 1GB sticks in it already, that means I'm looking at 2x 2GB sticks. Problem is, I don't want to get it from Apple, but I don't really know where else to get it and make sure it's compatible.

I've got a Macbook Pro from late 2007 (Model Identifier; MacBookPro3,1). Can anyone tell me what kind of RAM I need and where I can get it for a decent price?

Pretty much any PC2 5300 SODIMM will work. It does not have to be licked by Steve Jobs (aka Apple Certified) ;)

I don't think PC26400 is worth it as your MBP will only let Ram run maximum at 667 MHz.

Apple are not pirates, they are fascists! :)

Edit:

IIRC a friend of mine bought a MB in 2007 with a set of these in it (2x1GB version).

not always. A lot of high density modules won't work.

Plus the ones you linked are no cheaper than the 'Apple' ones I linked.
