Perhaps a noobish question about RAM here...

    Just wondering, as the high end macbook pro already comes with 4GB of RAM, can I just buy another 4GB RAM card to stick in the other slot to get me to 8GB?
    As people seem to buy 8GB of RAM even though they are already given 4, just curious :p

    The 4GB comes in two 2GB sticks, therefore you have to buy two 4GB sticks to get 8GB RAM.
    Btw, every current MBP comes with 4GB standard.

    MBP only has 2 slots for RAM and pre installed RAM of 4GB (2gb x 2) already occupies them. You would have to buy full 8GB (4GB x 2).
