Thread: 4GB RAM worth it??
06-22-2008, 08:54 PM #14GB RAM worth it??
Well I'm about to purchase my first Mac, and it's going to be a MBP 15', but before I make the final transaction I wanted to get a little more information so..is it worth it to get 4GB RAM? Or should I just stick with the 2GB and upgrade later if I feel like it?
Also on the note of tech specs is it worth to upgrade the processor or is 2.4 Ghz plenty?

I mean dude its your call of course more memory and a faster processor its gunna be fast dude. Just how fast do you want it ? what are you trying to do ?
IMO.... I would stick with the 2GB and the 2.4Ghz because MBP are not cheap and if you wanted to you could get the 4GB later on down the road.Trust Me You've Heard About Me"

Skip the RAM from Apple, get it from Crucial.com
Lots of people have recommended it, and I might just do the same.

yeah, I would upgrade to the 4 gigs but like the user above said, go with it from another company. If you look in your macbook pro manual it shows you how to install the ram (very easy and doesn't void warranty) and it's a lot cheaper. But having 4 gigs of ram is great....makes things a lot smootherLoving my MBP more and more everyday

It's worth it if you need it!! If you're going to use your laptop for doing basic stuff like surfing the net, email, etc 2gb would be enough.
But as others said, just buy your laptop with 2gb then see how you go and if needed you can still upgrade by yourself and save some money

it's a very easy swap. Pull the battery, pull 3 screws, release a tab, pull one stick and repeat. Install is reverse. Not worth the $$$ to pay Apple to do it.mike

if hes only going to be doing basic stuff like surfing, mail etc. then why spend so much extra to get a Macbook Pro? a normal macbook would be enough then...<< i can explain it to you...but i can't understand it for you... >>
