Where to find best MacBook RAM and HD replacement prices?

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
I'm thinking of jumping on a new MacBook soon. Does anyone have any suggestions about where to purchase quality RAM and HD replacements at competitive prices?

    I purchased a Hitachi 2.5" 7200RPM 100GB SATA for my MBP and love it, I bought it from MacMall.


    (Note the picture of an ATA drive, but you get a SATA drive).

    I have always bought RamJET ram through www.ramjet.com and have been satified. It isn't the cheapest, but it isn't the most expensive. I have never had any problem with it.

    oempcworld.com (can exchange the ram you remove for credit)

    and lots of other places.

    you might search using ramseeker.com or dealram.com


    Whatever you do, make sure you get the version of teh drive that can be powered down by the computer. Hitachi makes two versions of teh drive. One for servers - it CANNOT be powered down. And one for laptops that can be powered down by the OS.

    That's where I bought my 120 gig Seagate 5400rpm HD and it came across the states via UPS just in time!! ewiz has a variety of shipping options. I chose the 3 day just because i wanted my HD in time when i got my MacBook. The HD works great too!!! VERY quiet.

    I highly recommend ewiz for a nice, quiet, big HD, and Seagate is the brand to go for!

    I'll be buying more RAM in the next few months. But for now, 512 is fine for my needs.

    Drive: search www.dealmac.com

    RAM: search www.dealram.com

    From the sounds of it, sounds like the Toshiba 100 gig 7200 is the way to go and what I might get. I've never had a problem with bargain RAM. YMMV.

    Macsales.com seems to have some loud detractors, mostly related to their exchange and returns policies. YMMV


    An empty brain will lead to becoming a liberal slavetrader. And the liberal slavetraders control the schools.
