Hello all, I've been a regular reader on the boards, but now I am a first-time poster. I have a question about how much RAM I should get in a new macbook: I'm a grad student and use my computer for Internet, e-mail, Word, Excel, Powerpoint. I never do anything with videos, photos, etc... I do, however, use the basic apps regularly and intensely. So, will 1GB of RAM suffice for my needs or should I just upgrade to 2 GB? Will it make any difference with Leopard? Thanks in advance.
