    Hello, I have a uMBP 13' base model. I just received my Western Digital scorpio blue 500g hdd that is SATA 3.0. Should I install the new firmware update before I load anything onto the drive so i can utilize the 3.0Gbps instead of the 1.5Gbps? Should I install it at all? Will I notice a performance bump?

    I also received 4gb crucial ram, should i install the ram before installing the firmware update? Any help would be appreciated..

    Also, I was wondering if anyone else noticed the screen slightly getting brighter and dimmer, almost in intervals, when it is not plugged into the power cord. Is there any way to stop this? Its faint, but still noticeable..

    thanks for any help,
