    I'm waiting on delivery of the MBP 2.2 GHz. Is it ok to replace stock ram with 4GB upgrade kit before powering up the computer for the first time?

    Sure. You might want to make sure it can actually turn on first, though. And that you're not putting your RAM into a yellow-screened machine.

    yes I would power on and set it up first. Just so if you run into a problem you know it is the ram.

    plus wont it be interesting to see the significant increase in speed?

    Thanks, but won't the yellow screen show up either way? I guess your right, better to make sure I don't have a defective machine before upgrading the ram. Just can't wait to start the engine at 4GB!:D
