: Mac Pro (8 core) RAM available on 3rd party sites
While spec'ing a new Mac Pro (8 core) system today, I found that RAM is now available at 3rd party sites. At www.crucial.com it's almost 50% less than Apple's pricing.
4GB RAM at Crucial - $269
4GB RAM through Apple Store with Mac Pro - $500
www.edgetechcorp.com has the same RAM for $229, though they only list the 3.0ghz as the top of the line machine, not the 3.2Ghz so I would check with them before purchase.
Other World Computing (www.macsales.com) has their own RAM for $249.99
Nice to see the 3rd party sites have caught up with the new Mac Pro's as Apple has always charged a premium for their RAM. Personally I purchase all our RAM from Crucial as it was recommended to me about 4 years ago and we've never had an issue with their products.
