    Hey. I'm thinking about upgrading my MBP to 4gb Ram. I'm buying it from macsales.com and they will buy my current Ram for twenty bucks. Should I sell it to them? Or keep it just in case something happens to my computer and I get a replacement. Like I have now.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'd keep it just in case. Normally however, while Apple may penalise you, 3rd party authorised repair centers don't care.

    $20 isnt worth it, it retails for $60 over here, and they'll probably sell it on for $40, just keep it, as i've heard of people sending in a MBP with more ram, having to have the whole thing replaced and loosing theyre ram.

    $20 is nothing compared to the headache of shipping your Mac to Apple for repair. Plus you can perform any ram troubleshooting on your own with having the stock ram.

    In my case I threw the 2 1gb sticks into my work HP laptop. The HP's running Vista and it came w/ 2 - 512mb sticks.

    I just upgraded my new MB to 4gb and was thinking the same thing.
    OWC will give me $20, but I've decided its not worth it.
