    If I got a new 13 MBP could I uprgade the RAM myself? Is there a slot like the iMac that you can unscrew and pop more RAM in?

    Yes you can. Look at that User Guide that came with your Mac, around page 37 or so. If not, look for the online PDF version.

    You pop off the entire back cover and can replace the ram. There will be directions how to do so in the manual that came with the computer,

    I did it to my new i7 last night. Pulled the two 4mb sticks and repalced with two 4mb sticks. Took maybe 10 minutes.

    You only need a very small phillips screw driver and pay attention to where the longer 3 screws go. It is a breeze;)
