    Texas, where else?
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '11 1.8 i7 4GB 10.10; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.10; 5s & 5c
    I believe that MB officially supports 4 GB of memory, but can actually use up to 6 GB of memory.

    You can check on either Crucial or OWC for which RAM to get.
    You will not notice any difference related to battery life upgrading the memory on your machine.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    People seem to get those confused really easily. I think bobtomay even made a rant thread on it. It was actually pretty informative.

    As for which HDD to get...well I think the only 7200 RPM HDD that is 500GB for Notebook use is by Seagate.

    Link to the thread.

    Link to HDD.
