    Hi, I need to upgrade the RAM, the 4gb which comes as standard is no where near enough and always runs out even when doing basic tasks. For example, running iMovie and Firefox. It's not really demanding is it??

    So I want to know is any DDR3 RAM compatible?

    My local shop had a Corsair package of 2x4GB on for $50 so I took the plunge. Best thing I ever did for my MBP. Lion runs so much smoother now. Its a subtle change, you may not notice it at first but you soon find that your frustration level goes down.
