I'm not sure if the macbook ships with 2x256 or 1x512. if it's 1x512 you can find used imac/macbook pro/macbook member on ebay (people who have ordered a intel mac and purchased two 1GB chips and selling there 512mb it shipped with so its just about brand new) for under $30 shipped. $50 is not bad, but you can get it cheaper on ebay.com
I think for $80 shipped newegg offers 1GB sticks.
edit* $80 plus $4.99 shipping
IF it was me, I would pay the $50 and get the extra memory, especially if its a single 1Gig stick of memory... but them $50 translates into something different for me than I guess it would for you...
That's a deal, I would take it.
I agree, that is a good deal.
oh yeah...... Congratulations on the switch! OS X is such a wonderful experience. IBM's are still really great computers.
I would assume that the 1gb machine will have 2x512 which causes a problem if you want a 2nd gig.
1 GB total RAM is a good starting point for most users.
When Apple is upgrading you to 1 GB total RAM, they are only selling you an additional 512MB's of RAM
If you are a heavy user, you'll be better off buying the MacBook stock adding 2 single 1 GB RAM DIMMS 3rd party selling or saving the original 2 X 256 MB DIMMS.
You also need to think about a backup drive.
Your digital life will be on that notebook so I'd be sure to have safe copies of everything that matters.
What IBM computers?
