    Alright I have a MB and I'm going to sell it and get an MBP so I can do some video editing w/ final cut. I have 1 GB RAM in my MB...can I take 512 out and pop it in the MBP? I think it would save money...

    Thanks

    Yes

    Although a single 512 Mb SODIMM is a non-standard configuration and may make the MacBook harder to sell. Apple's stock 512 configuration would be 2 x 256 Mb SODIMMs to take advantage of Dual Channel Access.

    Yea but since most people are upgrading to 1GB I'd think it would be a good thing?

    You can play it either way. Certainly you can point out that they can put in a 512 or 1Gb into the open socket.
