    2GB is plenty. If you do add more memory do your wallet a favor and DO NOT BUY FROM APPLE. It's a ripoff pure and simple.

    not so much anymore with the new notebooks. its actually very reasonable just to have them do it. no longer outrageous.

    No, a minimum of 16GB of RAM is necessary to play even very low-res content. Don't let anyone else tell you otherwise. :D

    Kidding, if you want to see a handy guide for video playback requirements (though this is for Quicktime) see here.

    There is nothing that will ever convince me of this.

    On Apple's site it says $150 more for 2GB more of RAM. Same thing available from Crucial for $68, or a 2GB chip for $33. Seriously!
