Since Apple RAM is way too expensive, I plan to order my MBP with the stock 512MB and add two 1GB sticks -- one of which would replace the 512MB stick. I just want to make sure I won't have to disassemble the entire computer to replace the stock RAM. Long story short -- are both RAM slots on the MacBook Pro user-accessible? EDIT: Never Mind -- I downloaded the MacBook Pro Manual and it answered my question -- From the manual: "Your computer has two memory slots that you can access by removing the memory door in the battery bay." That would have to mean both slots are user accessable, huh?
