    I have a late 2008 Alu MB and it's currently using 2 GB RAM. I'm thinking of upgrading to 6 GB through this http://eshop.macsales.com/item/Other World Computing/8566DDR3S6GP/ How much faster would my MB be? I'm using it mostly for photoediting via Lightroom and PhotoShop and sometimes video editing. I also watch 1080p movies. Would there be a noticeable difference in any of that? Thanks.

    Yes you will notice the difference. The whole system and apps will run faster and snappier. It is wise and not too expensive of an upgrade.

    Do it! You'll enjoy it. And you can swap it out again if you ever get another Macbook.
