    OK, call me lazy but I don't have time to read through 9 pages of posts in the MBP RAM thread. Can someone please summarise the situation? And how does it apply to Macbooks?

    And on a personal level, Photoshop is my most intensive program. Files are generally around 100MB but occasionally over 300MB. Is over 4GB going to make a huge difference?

    4 works, 6 works, 8 doesn't. Go with 4, it's much cheaper than 6 and you really won't notice a difference between the two.

    OK, so any advantage of 2 + 2 instead of a single 4? Cost must be about the same. The Macbook comes with 1 + 1, right? So really it's 2 +2, a single 4 or 4 + 1. Thoughts?

    if cost is the same, go with 4 + 1, but i think that a single 4gb will be priced substantially more than 2x 2gb

    edit: 2x 2gb is like 120-140$ and 4gb seems like 350+$
