...Any suggestions for places to order Mac memory from?

(I think I may just walk into an Apple store and have them install it, but I haven't decided yet.)

kristine_smith has been using Small Dog Electronics for her Mac needs, and I know that she's been happy with them.

As with all things memory-related, Crucial.com.

And c'mon, be a true geek, install it yourself! If I can go out and buy sandpaper and sharpen a putty knife to install RAM in my Mac Mini, you can certainly do whatever it is one does to get RAM into a PowerBook.

Installing the memory is fairly trivial, I'm not exactly worried about that.

To tell the truth, I was already leaning towards Crucial. Now that I think about it, over the last five years, I've only bought memory from two places, Dell (where I've bought three of the five computers I've bought in that timeframe) and Crucial. And while it does appear that other places may be slightly cheaper, having looked around, it appears that there are only two places where I'm sure I'd be getting the right SO DIMM, and that's Crucial or Apple (a number of places don't seem to have enough published specs, etc., for me to be completely certain that the part will work, even after scouring the PowerBook docs and such).

And while perhaps not the cheapest around, Crucial's a heck of a lot cheaper than Apple. Enough cheaper that I'm probably going to order the memory tonight.
