I have already decided on getting a 2.0GHz macbook because of the superdrive. But Iwas also thinking, should I upgrade the RAM? is it cheaper if I upgrade it when I buy it or should I just wait and buy one from another manufacturer? I've seen how easy it is to install the ram aswell..

Is it easy to find the exact RAM needed for a macbook? I'm afraid of buying the wrong kind of RAM and wasting my money because i'm not very computer-oriented on the uhh motherboard stuff.

Sorry if this is making no sense, but i'm new to upgrading my computers and such.

It really does depend on your level of comfort doing the upgrade. From a pur price advantage, I'd say buy memory online and do the upgrade yourself. For about $170, you can get 2GB of Corsair memory, which is a heck of a lot cheaper than the $450 Apple wants.
