I'm using 1.2gb's of RAM in my MBP right now, and it's been on for 20 days...

I doubt you'll see a speed difference between 2 and 4 gigs of RAM if you're just watching hulu or iTunes.

im just going to use this computer for web browsing and watching movies in hd when im on the road?

i only rent the movies so i dont see why id need more than 2gb with 64

if anyone else sees any reason to upgrade let me know im going to the apple store to buy it tomorrow

I routinely browse the internet on an iMac with 4 Gb and a MacBook with 1 Gb. I can't tell a difference.

2GB should be fine for your usage.
