I know Apple Ram is the highest but is there any performance advantage and safety advantage for buying RAM from APPLE?



I have dual 867 mirror drive mac with 512 ram

    Apple gets their RAM from Crucial (http://www.crucial.com/). You should too. It's a lot cheaper direct from the source, and very reliable.

    Very good brand of ram. If your looking for some other high quailty ram. Look at OWC and look for $Techworks$ ram.

    They consistently have the lowest prices, and a lifetime guarantee. I've run tests between their RAM and Crucial, and I've not seen any measurable differences. Been ordering from them for a while, never an issue.

    Actually, Crucial has cheaper RAM then them, in some cases, like the G4 Cube. It's only by $4, but its still cheaper. Plus, they say the G4 Cube can support 2GB's of RAM. I thought it only supported 1.5GB's?

    That's where I get my RAM from. Never had a problem.

    Get the cheapest. It's like CD-R it's all made by the same 12 year old Japanese kids so it doesn't matter.
