Does anyone have any suggestions about where to purchase quality RAM and HD replacements at competitive prices? Comments Reply 1 of 6 jpennington Posts: 476member June 14, 2006 10:27AM I purchased a Hitachi 2.5" 7200RPM 100GB SATA for my MBP and love it, I bought it from MacMall.http://www.macmall.com/macmall/shop/...pno~667556.asp(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.

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.

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.

I've never had a problem with bargain RAM. YMMV. Reply 5 of 6 flounder Posts: 2,674member June 16, 2006 9:52AM www.macsales.com has always done me right. Reply 6 of 6 jccbin Posts: 476member June 16, 2006 12:24PM 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. Sign In or Register to comment.
