    I have the late 2008 stock Alu MacBook. This upgrade is based on WoW performance. I currently have 2GB of RAM and 160GB of HD. It has never been an issue till now. I can only afford either a RAM or HD upgrade right now. Which would help on running WoW smoother? Thanks.

    For two hundred you can do both and have a pretty nice upgraded machine. You might as well save a little and do both at the same time.

    That being said, the RAM upgrade will immediately help with WoW. The HD upgrade wont play much of a role in WoW.

    HD will help, with loading etc, but RAM is a better upgrade first.

    Thanks guys. I bought the memory from Crucial. If i didn't live in Canada i would be able to do it for $200 but shipping and taxes pretty much dominate my orders all the time...
