    Hey guys,

    I'm getting a macbook monday (2.4 GHz) and i'm thinking about getting the memory upgrade from 2gb of memor to 4. here are my options let me know what u think is best (the prices are in Canadian):

    1. Macbook 2.4 GHz. 2GB ram. $1,649
    2. Macbook 2.4 GHz. 4GB ram. $1,762
    3. Macbook Pro 2.4 GHz. 2GB ram. $2,049

    p.s. i'm just using the computer for standard university stuff, no video editing. i don't really think i need a macbook pro but i might get one if it's worth the extra money.

    sorry guys, i know it's a lot of info, what do u think is best? I'm really bad with this stuff

    fast 1: I got th prices from apple.com store. they're in canadian with the college student discount

    sumdaii: ya, that's what i'm leaning towards right now too. i'm just wondering how much of a difference having the 4gb of ram compared to the 2gb.

    thanks guys

    If you really want too have 4GB, just get the one with 2 and upgrade it for less. And the Pro is probably too much for what you want to do with it, unless you want the screen size.

    I think 4gb of DDR3 1067mhz RAM is about 60 something USD. Much cheaper then the 150USD that apple charges.

    Get the MBP and upgrade the RAM when you have extra money, or when you buy it.

    Pretty much. The speed boost is nice.
