Hello guys my sister is purchasing a macbook today/tommorow from the educational discount and I'm trying to decide if she should get 1GB ram or 2GB She will use this computer for 3.5+ years. Basically I can't decide if she should pay the extra now and get the 2GB or ram so we don't have to worry about it later or if she should wait. Im sorda leaning toward getting it for her now but idk if she needs the power as she will mostly be using it for web office ichat itunes... etc. nothing that demands the extra power but in the future it could. The other thing is it will probably run better with 2gb of ram when leapord comes out later this year.. So any advice would be great...
