I have a 13" macbook pro unibody. 2gb of ram.

do you think this would be a good investment? It would upgrade my ram to 4gb 4.0GB (2x2.0GB Kit) PC-8500 DDR3 1066MHz... (8566DDR3S4GP) at OWC

does it look like it would work well?

or maybe this? 4gb ram as well.

hey crimson, would you recommend upgrading to 8gb or ram at all. Would there be any real benefits for a college student, or would it only really help with intensive programs? Thanks!

ps. sorry op for the hijack, just didn't think it deserved it's own thread.

Burton, after a certain point it would only really help for intensive applications. Depending on your graphics card, it would help to take some pressure off it. However, you may bottleneck it.


Press any key to continue, or any other key to cancel.

There are 10 kinds of people in the world: Those who understand binary
and those who don't.

4GB is more than enough for what a college student is going to be doing. You only need 8GB if you are doing 3D renderings/music encoding.

Plus I rather spend 800 dollars on something worthwhile like vacation money.
