    I am either getting a mac book or a macbook pro and am planning on doing some video editing and working with flash to make a website.

    I was wondering if 2GB would be necessary or if I should stick with 1 (assuming I get a macbook)

    I am going to be a sophomore and would like to have it the rest of high school so maybe 1GB would become outdated quickly? I do like speed and was also wondering if I should get 3rd party memory? does that void the warranty?

    I still can't decide if I should get a macbook or a macbook pro

    any feedback would be helpful

    for video editing, a Pro would be better - i think - because of the dedicated graphics card.

    in either case, get 2GB of RAM. third-party RAM is fine and it does not void the warranty. look at deals from Crucial or OWC. deals can also be found on newegg and similar sites.
