    Ok guys I am going to make my first Mac upgrade ever and what better than to start with memory. First of all I run alot of Flash, DW, etc, Will 1gb of memory help out alot in these programs? I get around three bounces and then 10 sec. for them to open. I wanna know will my PB scream after I add the 1gb I have 512 now. Will this alter my ext. warranty if I purchase and install it myself will my battery life get shorter, Please help.


    PB 1.5ghz 15.2 512mb ddr.

    If you are running alot of high end apps, more RAM is always better. You should see improvements when working with larger files. RAM cannot void warranty as it is a user installable item.

    Your battery life should not get shorter. If anything it may increase as your hard drive will be used less for pageouts. But I would not expect too much change in battery life.
