Can you see anything wrong with this?

    Those modules aren't SO-DIMMs (the smaller, laptop form factor memory modules) - they won't fit in the MacBook.

    You need 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) for the macbook.

    Here is what they are offering on newegg for SO-DIMMs

    Thanks guys. I thought i checked to make sure it was right but i guess i missed that part.

    I think i am going to go with the transcend. I have never used their ram but i have had good luck with their CF cards

    I just went from 512 to 2gigs in my black Macbook. It's much faster!!! Upgrade your memory now! You won't regret it!

    my original plan was to just upgrade to 1 gig through apple. For one gig, it made sense to do it through them but then i decided that i wouldn't mind having some extra ram to speed everything up. Especially with the low prices these days.
