Maybe not news to anyone here; but omg 512MB of RAM is way insufficient for this machine. Makes me wonder why it shipped with it in the first place. Even running a few apps it beachballs far too frequently, (Speed is very important to me). For computer novices who don't understand much about RAM (like my friend who owns this MB) it makes OSX look very poor. I just hope when I buy my 2GB RAM MBP it runs without ANY slowdowns. Anyone with 2GB RAM MB/MBP care to comment about the performance? OK, I feel better now.
