I posted a question yesterday on the hi-res screen for a new MBP I'm going to purchase this week and got some great input - so thanks to all. I'm going to go with the default RAM on my MBP - "4GB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x2GB" At this point, I'm going to go ahead and buy 8GB of RAM (from a 3rd party) at the same time I buy the MBP. I'm going to wait on the SSD based on some forum searches and the new Intel SSD's coming out (thanks!) Based on some searches on this forum, I saw this option (that was on sale recently) - 8.0GB (2x4.0GB) NuRAM PC8500 DDR3 1066MHz SO-DIMM Memory (http://eshop.macsales.com/item/Newer Technology/8566DDR3S8GP/) for $107. This RAM is compatible with my upcoming MBP b/c it was posted on the forums, but I'm assuming I also know it's compatible b/c it's DDR3 and 1066MHz like the Apple installed RAM? Are there other options I should look at besides DDR3 and 1066MHz? (this is probably a dumb question). If so, how do I know they'll work in my MBP? I'm not too interested in chasing down prices if most of my options are between $90-$110. I'm much more interested in making sure I buy something that's compatible with my MBP. Should I just buy this "surely compatible" option or shop around? One last thing - I've never even opened one of my computers. Using fixit.com (something else i found on a forum search - thanks!) or something similar, can a rookie pull it off? I hate the idea of taking the back off of a new MBP and doing some damage. Sorry for the rookie questions!
