    I want to replace my 2gb of RAM and add 4gb of ram to my macbook pro unibody 15 inch

    Just because RAM is so cheap now i found RAM for this laptop for 4GB for $45.

    BUT the thing is i heard that with snow leopard, less of the RAM will be used , so it will be like you have more RAM then usual.

    Is this true? (That with snow leopard will use less RAM)

    More RAM is always a good thing. And can you provide the link to that RAM? that's an awesome price! :) Thanks

    snow leopard might use less RAM but your applications will still use it. and like drewsof07 said more RAM=good

    upgrading your RAM does not void the warrenty on the computer. but if your RAM fails it is not covered by apple care. same thing if you upgrade your HD.
