I have the latest macbook pro 15" with 2 gigs of RAM. I'm not sure if I really need more RAM, but if I ever did, I was wondering if my macbook has two 1 gig sticks, or one 2 gig stick. You can see why this is important information when needing to upgrade. Also, would more RAM make that much of a difference? I do pretty average stuff on my mac, no video editing or producing.

They will be 2 x 1 gig sticks

But unless you start doing lots of Photoshop or video encoding its not strictly necessary
