    Since I plan on doing a lot of Java development on my new MBP core due, I wanted to put an extra gig stick of RAM in there. I currently have 1 gig, and want to go to 2. Does anyone have any ram recomendations? Also is there a memory test program for the mac?

    I recommend OWC and DMS for RAM...terrific Mac vendors with good prices.

    For testing RAM, many people like to use Memtest. I generally just rely on day-to-day usage of the system to evaluate my RAM, but it can be a useful tool.

    Apple Ram, usually Samsung or Hynix.
    As far as a RAM test, the techtool app that comes with AppleCare will do a basic one. The Apple service software (ASW) has a good one. Good luck getting that though.
