I am looking to get 2 x 2gb RAM modules for my Macbook Pro, and I have seen on the Ramjet site that their memory is "non-stacked" and therefore uses less power. Ramjet RAM is expensive and shipped (rather expensively) from the US to the UK though, so I was wondering if anyone knows other brands of RAM that use non-stacked chips. Failing that, is there a way you can tell by looking at the chips themselves?

Macbook Pro 2.4ghz, Mac OS X (10.5.4)

    <http://www.macfixit.com.au/shop/index.php?_a=viewCat&catId=53> Have a look at this website. It is in Australia but you can email them with any further questions with regards to 2x2 GB Ram modules. I am not sure if they ship outside of Australia but if you like you can email these guys and find out. I recently purchased 2x2gb RAM from here and it works fine in my computer. Youtube have people talking about RAM modules as well... just suggestions

    Yes, I'm sure all RAM of the right spec works fine in a Macbook Pro, however I'm specifically wanting to know which manufacturers use non-stacked chips in their RAM. As I said, Ramjet are the only ones who mention stacking, and they say that they use non-stacked chips. This is what I'm after, but I don't want to buy it from Ramjet.

    It may be that everyone else who makes 2gb chips uses stacked memory and this is why they don't mention it, but I would like to know this for sure.
