    Im thinking about buying a Macbook pro 15" and i might upgrade the ram to 8 gb. Is there a Guide to changing that with pictures?


    Also do the new MBP 4 gb have one chip of ram with 4 or 2 chips with 2 apiece

    Thanks,
    Peyton

    First: Don't type like this. It is annoying.

    Apple probably has one somewhere. If not, try ifixit.

    iFixit hasn't released a guide yet. They have the best pictorial guides.

    Correct. You can sell the old RAM, or you can keep it.

    Many people do put the Apple RAM back in before taking it in for repairs. Having non-Apple RAM won't void the warranty, but it will stop coverage on the RAM.

    One can use the guide for the MacBook Pro 17-inch model (Early 2009), as that method should apply to the 13-inch and 15-inch model, as they share the same innards and setup.

    I should have stated that in my original post.
