ok so excuse me if I sound like I dont know much about what im talking about cause well. I dont. anyways my mbp had a problem loading discs and it turns out that its the drive and it needs to be replaced. Its no longer in warrenty so I have to come out of pocket for it. There is a place here in town that quoted me $650 for the drive and 2gigs of ram installed. I plan to get final cut and already use PS a bit. I also am going to run windows for a couple things. my current specs are Model Identifier: MacBookPro1,1 Processor Name: Intel Core Duo Processor Speed: 2 GHz Number Of Processors: 1 Total Number Of Cores: 2 L2 Cache (per processor): 2 MB Memory: 1 GB Bus Speed: 667 MHz Boot ROM Version: MBP11.0055.B08 SMC Version: 1.2f10 Now I would like to get 4gigs but they are telling me that its a extra $200 because it only has two spots for ram so my 1gig would be obsolete. Would it be worth it to get the 4gigs or is $200 a waist for just a gig? Most of my time on my computer is spent watching video/dvds and surfing the web but I just figured that it would be wise to do it while its being worked on. Also does that sound like a fair price and is there anything else I should upgrade while its down?
