Has anyone ever bought memory from memorytogo.com? I got to it off a link from the macworld website. They have 1GB for $136.00. Can this be? I just need to get the one recommended for the iBook, G4, 1.33 14 inch...right? Crucial has the memory for $172. Are they more legit? Comments?

    Marco,

    What do you mean by more legit? Are you asking if one is a better quality memory module than another? If that's the case, the then the Crucial will probably be a bettery quality module than what you may receive from memorytogo.com. It's not uncommon for a price that low mean that you expecty to receive a generic memory module that problably doesn't go through the rigorous quality control of say a Crucial, Kensington, GEIL, etc.

    Bear in mind the old adage. You get what you pay for.

    Cheers,

    Duke

    Marco- Might I suggest you repost on the Ibook memory board and also search that board to read if anyone else has purchased from memorytogo. I also agree that you get what you pay for. Both of my Apple Ibooks came with Samsung Memory and of course if Apple selects it for some of it's Ibooks, I am sure it is good memory.

    Just to not leave anyone hanging...I did end up getting Crucial 1GB of RAM. My iBook now is loaded with 1.25GB memory. WOW is it a difference. I used to have 512. Right now, I have Safari, Mail, iChat, iTunes (downloading videos!), Calandar - all running at the same time, and my activity monitor is not even breaking a sweat. I would highly recommend to anyone who can...max out the RAM!
