3GB MacBook memory upgrade
Other World Computing (OWC) today announced that it is the first company to offer up to 3GB of expansion memory for Apple's consumer-oriented MacBook laptops. Apple itself only offers up to 2GB of memory when configuring a brand new MacBook, and the 3GB memory upgrade option is also compatible with Apple's MacBook Pro and Intel-based iMac systems. OWC also says its memory upgrades are priced at less than half of what Apple's factory-installed memory costs, and is easy to install via a free online video installation guide as well as a lifetime advance replacement warranty. OWC customers also receive trade-in rebates of up to $55 per module on their existing factory memory, according to the company. Memory modules for Apple's MacBook are available in 512MB ($45) and 1GB ($85) capacities with a 2GB kit (two 1GB module set for $170) also available. Memory upgrades for all Core 2 Duo Intel Macs are available in 2GB ($260) and 3GB (340) capacities.
