    I just got my MacBook pro, (15 inch, 2.4GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 3MB shared level 3 cache, 4 GB of 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM, 320 GB 5400 rpm hard drive). I am very computer unsavvy. Not a gamer, I check my email, want to back up my iPhone, and use iTunes, store some pictures/music/videos. Does this laptop have enough memory, etc. I know this is probably a stupid question, but I have no idea!:D
    Thanks in advance!

    I can play video games, edit HD film, and run VM's... on less RAM. You're fine!

    It is, and if you're lucky like me, you'll order it with 4 GB of RAM and it will come with 8 GB :D

    Not that you (or I) need that much, but it is nice to have... just in case.

    Unless you're going to be doing heavy video/photo editing or running virtual machines, then 4GB is more than plenty.

    I upgraded mine to 8GB because I use VMWare Fusion to run a WinXP machine in the background for some Windows only software that I use.
