Safe to remove all the RAM to install new ones?

    I have a feeling this might be a stupid question, but I just wanted to make sure:
    I recently purchased a MBP and bought 2 sticks of 2GB Crucial RAM. The MBP I bought is supposed to come with 2 sticks of 1GB Apple RAM.

    Will there be any negative effects if I take all the Apple RAM out and only use the Crucial RAM?

    Awesome, as a follow up to that.. is there any reason I would want to keep the original RAM that came with the machine, or could I just sell it (if it would even sell)?

    If you have another machine you could put it in that if its compatable. Another reason to keep it would be if you feel the new memory might die, but this probably is not likely. I would recommend selling the extra memory now before the price drops.

    I would keep it just in case if the ram fails or some other problem.

    You can also ebay it to make some money. The price of ram depreciates over time...
