    Can buy both in the UK and in the USA as I travel there for business quite a bit. How much am I looking to spend? can you recommend good places to buy?

    Few things first...I'm assuming you mean 4GB not 4MB. ;)

    You are going to have to replace the RAM in the computer. You can't just add to it. They put in 2 1GB sticks, so, you have to replace them with 2 2GB sticks. As far as where to buy, I want to know also. Prices are a lot lower than if you buy from Apple, that's for sure.

    Just to illustrate the point about not buying from Apple: I just bought an extra gig of RAM for my second gen (C2D) 15" MBP this week:

    UK Apple Webstore: £120
    Crucial UK webstore: £28

    For yourself:

    UK Applestore? A whopping £640!
