Will there be a noticeable speed difference to upgrading the memory on my 2.4 SR MBP?
Depends on the apps you are using, but yes, you should upgrade that RAM. Max it out BABY!
just got and installed my 4GB.
System profile recognizes it fine. Should I bother with ram test or whatever you guys keep talking about?
Better safe than sorry.
which app do i use?
No real need to run a test unless your unit starts to brain fart.
more ram is definitely better. especially if you'll be using adobe programs but it does help your system and other programs in general as well. if you can afford 4gb of ram (i dunno why not since it's like 100 dollars to upgrade) definitely go for it. but if you're really strapped for cash, 2gb is 'sufficient'.
then when you have enough money, upgrade!
just got my 4 G from newegg.
it's actually kingston and it's just $85
i didn't pay for shipping
it took 3 days to get here.
i installed it in less than 5 minutes.
system recognized it,
i won't be performing any test.
hppy with the purchase
Always test it. You may not notice problems, but they could definitely be occurring.
google memtest. Boot it and run it for a while.
Whether you notice a difference or not depends on what you are doing. For me, I did notice a difference. Most notable was that I could now assign 2GB of memory to my XP virtual machine in Fusion while leaving 2GB to OS X. Prior to that I had to do 1GB and 1GB to each. I noticed a small difference in the time it took to start apps and the number of beach balls I received (less). I'd say get it if you can afford it.
agree. you might have a bad chip at the end of the stick but since you never use it so it's not showing. memtest will test every memory address.
you can also run the GUI version Rember. Download here
