    Just ordered my 4GB of RAM!
    Just ordered my 4GB of RAM off of newegg. I'm looking forward to installing it. Just wondering how your guy's experiences with installing RAM went and what differences you saw after you installed it.

    Specs:
    Way... way too many specs to list.
    Installation of ram is trivial. Literally remove the battery and 3 screws. Never ran it with only 2GB

    Just did mine last night (new white MacBook 2.4). Upgraded both the memory and the HD (to a 320 gig), couldn't have been easier. Can't really comment about performance as I only ran it with 2 Gb for a few minutes , but I know it's made a significant improvement in other boxes I've done the same to.

    Such a good buy at that price point. Does the blackbook 2.4ghz justice.

    Wow....only $90 for 4 gigabites? That's a great deal.

    No, it is not a joke.
    I don't find your "I'm a cheetah." joke funny.
