I got 2 1gb sticks for my Macbook today and I stepped into a world of difference. I dont flinch if my little guy is pushing 6200 rpm exhaust and 70% cpu usage, because my computer doesn't slow down when that happens anymore, he just chugs along. I had never had more than 1.5gb RAM in any of my computers before now. It is so freaking sweet.

I just put a 2nd gig in my MBP last week. It really is a world of difference.

It was a world of difference when I upgraded a couple months back. My fan has actually stopped turning on as often

Yeah..When I decided to get my MacBook I went ahead and got 2gb right off the bat. Wouldn't ever want to use anything lower from now on.

It does make a big difference, especially if you run anything like Parallels, or any Rosetta app like MS Office 2004. My wife as 1gig and I have 2 gigs on comparable MacBooks, and I see hers chug every now and again, whereas mine never does. When I upgrade her to Leopard, I'll upgrade the RAM too.

I'll probably get a set of two 1GB sticks come November... waiting for a game to come out and then get them both off Newegg... (1 gig currently)

Can't wait!
