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.
