    I'm going to buy the new macbook pro when it's released but I was wondering if I bought the MBP with 2gb ram and then bought crucial 2gb ram to make a total of 4gb. would the crucial and mac ram be compatible together or if i would have to buy 4 gb crucial and not use the mac ram at all. Also does the macbook come with 2x 1gb or 1x2gb and how many slots does the MBP come with? 4? Thank you:D

    Afaik the default configuration is 2x 1GB and it has only 2 slots. To upgrade to 4GB you'd need to buy 2x 2GB modules.

    You need to buy a (ideally matched-) pair of 2GB RAM chips from Crucial.

    Otherwise, if you buy one 2GB chip, you'll end up with 3GB, as the MBP will come with TWO 1GB chips. They should be installed in pairs. The MBP has 2 RAM slots.

    Just get a 4GB matched pair from Crucial (2x2GB) and sell (or keep) the 2x1GB that comes with the MBP.
