    I've been shopping with Crucial for a long time (and referred them) and have been very satisfied with the quality[...]and prices. When I decided to upgrade the memory in my 3-year-old laptop so I could use it to beta test Windows 7, Crucial was my first and last stop. This was the first time, however, that I discovered later (after ordering), that Dell's price for their memory upgrade kit was actually LESS than Crucial's. So, my tip would be, go to Crucial first, and see what their price is, then check your OEM's price before ordering.
