As I noted in Apple’s official discussion boards and my blog in October, the new MacBooks (late 2008 aluminum) are having a hard time with 3rd Party RAM, even when that RAM has the same specs that Apple recommends. As far as I know, noone at Apple has commented on the problem, yet, and the techs I’ve spoken to haven’t mentioned any official message.
Luckily, JKOnTheRun just took up the torch and TUAW is on the case as well. For all those who are not near an Apple store and can’t get the cheap official RAM swap, let’s hope a firmware patch is in the works!
