Bought my rev A 15" 1.25 PB in January with the intention of getting more RAM later (had to go for the stock 2 x 256 since was buying it off the shelf to get a discount in my local store).

Now thinking about buying the extra RAM and had a look at Crucial

They have a 1G for 303 or I could buy 2 x 512 for 109

Aside from having to dispose of a 512 if I decide to upgrade again (unlikely at the moment) is there any reason not to go for the 2 x 512 when it's so much cheaper?

no. most recommend getting a 512mb stick, since the 1gb stick is so expensive. im not sure whether you will be able to use both sticks though, since one slot is fixed (i think) and the other is expandable (f.e. 12" pb always 256mb + 1 more stick 256-1gb).

Well it'll cost you an extra 200 to buy a 1GB stick, that's a little crazy. You probably won't need more than 2x512 anytime soon and you can easily sell your 2x256 on eBay to make back a bit of the upgrade cost.

If money is no object get the 1GB if you want to save the money for some other upgrade get the 2x512.
