Upgrading the memory and hard drive in a MBP are easy upgrades which you can do yourself. There are numerous videos on line and also at vendors who sell memory and hard drivers that show how to do it. If you have any doubt about your ability to do the upgrades yourself, then by all means have a professional do it for you. You can have it done at your local Apple store or any authorized Apple dealer.

Thank you very much.Do you have any idea how to use spell check? How does one actually get to change a word?Or get options on the spelling?

From the responses, it seems the general consensus is that when you have the "automatically use spell checker suggestion" engaged, then there is no way to keep the word as originally typed, which the spell checker continues to replace with something you don't want. Is that it? There really are no options or keyboard commands to keep the word as originally typed?

Back when I used Outlook, you could use some kind of key command to return the word from what the spell checker change it back to how you originally typed/spelled it. Although, I can't remember exactly what it was, I think like "command" and "backspace" at the same time). Lion/Pages doesn't have anything like that?

Example: typed and wanted "Mulcahy", but spell checker kept changing it to "Mulch".

Like sunshinshade, I actually want to use the automatic setting, but this one thing makes it frustrating. I've played with different kind of key commands, and I've searched other forums, and have not found an answer other than "uncheck the box for "automatically use..." I just wanted to be sure I posted it specifically enough to see if there actually was an answer. So, sorry about the long post.
