    Well, congratulations! I got mine friday and i'm also loving the experience... About the 2Gb of RAM... I think that if you could afford the 23" display, you can also get the 2 Gb of RAM, from what i read in forums it will make your Mac faster and it wouldn't hurt to.

    Yeah, do it. You'll want to max that RAM if you can swing it.

    Good 'ol thread. So useful. :D

    From what I've read and seen, it's EXTREMELY easy, especially when compared to other laptops.

    I got the 2GB from OWC and couldn't be happier, this machine flies.
    hard drive replacement is a snap.

    After you remove the metal "L" bracket to get at the ram there is a pull tab that pulls out the hard drive.

    Screw off the small metal tray, put it on the new one, slide it back in. Put in the OSX disk, format the drive (5 mins), reload OSX and you are done. It took me less than ten minutes to install the ram and hard drive and I had never done that before.

    Get the seagate 160GB drive, loving it - so much delicious room.

    Sorry a bit OT but i've wondered if there is a substantial difference between 1.5 and 2 gigs of ram. Not that I have $200 to throw around but maybe one day if it was worth it
