    Help! In your opinion...
    Hi there,


    Im soon to be getting myself a mackbook. Either the 2.ghz or the 2.2 ghz. Im very new to mac and still quite young so it is all a new experience for myself! I am planning on using the mac for mainily internet use, a few photo downloads and editing, i tunes and maybe the one game.

    Will this mac book run the sims? Or will it run the civiliazation game? Which laptop do you thing would most likely be the best? I also have seen a lot of people mentinoning they have upgraded the ram is this an easy thing to do? Or does it take a lot of time and the brains to do it to?!

    This is my last final few questions before I go for the buy so if you could get back to me with any help what so ever that would be great!!!


    Thankyou

    upgrading ram is really easy to do and will be essential if you're running a game like the sims. you will definitely love your macbook and will not be let down by your purchase

    Apple's memory is notoriously overpriced. Upgrading is a fairly trivial matter, you can find documentation for doing so here.

    I recommend Crucial for memory. It is top quality, reasonably priced, lifetime guaranteed and compatibility is guaranteed when you use their online memory selector tool. The UK version of their webstore is available here.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Always get my RAM from Crucial(UK) too. Service and quality is top notch, if you order early enough in the day it will usually be delivered the following day!
