    With the new MBP's the Apple Store only gives 2 options for RAM. The 2 GB or 4 GB. Now could I go to Crucial or some other place and get a 2GB stick to replace ONE of the 1 GB sticks?

    So basically I want 3 GB of RAM, will the macine recognize the 3 GB of RAM or do I have to replace both in order for it to work.

    Yes, you can do 3 Gb ( 1 + 2 ) with third party RAM

    But there's some great deals on 4 Gb kits now, so consider getting the machine with 1 + 1 and going the whole hog to 4 Gb

    USA vendors most often recommended on MR are Crucial (use link at the top of this page - although it must be said that Crucial's price isn't the best right now), OWC (MacSales) and Data Memory Systems

    Thanks

    Ok good

    I thought you needed even incriments of RAM on a Mac. On my Dimension 8300 I have 512, 512, 256, 256 with all my slots taken up.
