    i can't find diddly on youtube yet.

    anyone got a good explanation/video of what it's like to open without the battery area?

    any recommendations on what ram to buy to get to 8gb?


    thanks!

    It would be exactly the same as the '09 models, I believe.

    Careful when you take out the first RAM module. I had a sweaty hard time as I managed to stick one edge of it into one corner of the slot and it wouldn't come out anymore.

    Hynix is the standard Apple RAM.

    Not true. My last two MBP's (2009 and 2010) came with Micron RAM. My 2008 came with Samsung. Apple uses many RAM suppliers.

    I never said Apple doesn't use RAMs from other manufacturers. I said Hynix is a standard Apple RAM. All the MBPs I've seen, including my 2010 model came with Hynix RAMs. I guess it varies from region to region.

    thx, hellhammer- at 315, with a 60 dollar rebate on the 2 2gb ones that come with it, that's a good deal- 255 for 8gb? nice.

    Yeah, it's great deal. Others are +350$ so you saved 100$

    It couldn't be any easier swapping out ram on unibody macbooks.

    Remove the screws on the bottom of the case, pop the bottom cover off, pull back the two levers on each side of the ram sticks and *POP* out comes your old ram.

    Insert new ram, put bottom cover back on, screw in the screws and voila!

    Shouldn't take more than a few minutes from start to finish.

    :D
