Memory for Apple Computers is made and manufactured in many sizes shapes, styles, and usually every two years or so the ram for the latest Mac changes and uses the latest technology. Moore’s Law dictates that every 18 months your new computer or ram will b half the price and double the speed.
These days 1GB of RAM usually ships standard with most iMacs, Macbooks, MacBo0k Pro’s or even Mac Pros – but for older macs that shipped with less ram a 1GB ram upgrade might mean the difference between getting a few more years out of your computer or enhancing the performance of the computer you already own and have paid for.

At the time of writing this article 1GB of memory for apple or otherwise (it’s the same type of ram usually for PC or Mac) has a street price of about $20 per chip. You can buy ram from Apple, but I don’t usually recommend it as the price is too high. They are getting more competitive with ram prices over the years.

They might also state that the third party memory is the result of your problems, but this is doubtful as all third party ram vendors manufacture ram to exact specifics as dicated by apple the ram requirements.
