how many memory banks does the new macbook pro have?

wouldn't it be better to get the 2x512 and not a 1 gig stick ?

2x512Mb accesses the RAM in dual channel mode which is faster than 1x1Gb.

I'd get a 1GB stick as the first slot isn't easily accessible (AFAIK) and you might be stuck with 512 MB in one slot should you decide to upgrade later.
