    The website macserive.com has some interesting products (along with replacement parts for MBPs) what is interesting to me is their price for ram $440 w(for 4 gigs) which is a lot less than Apple's price, and also the fact that they offer a replacement 200 gig 7200 RPM hardrive (thats a lot of hardrive space, $395). If I bought both of these from Macservice that would be only slightly more than just the price of the 4 gigs of RAM from apple...the question is, do they offer quality parts and has anyone had experience with them before?

    Yea a a website like that though replaces them for you...
    although I know the manager of the local "computer super center" in my town and they are always really nice too me so I am sure that I can buy the hardrive online and have them replace it for a decent cost (btw they are an authorized mac retailer and service center.

    there is their website if your curious
