    I'm buying my first Macbook tomorrow! I plan on getting the 2.0 version but want to upgrade the ram to 4gb. I've never done it on my own before but it looks like it could be cheaper. A few questions....

    1) If i want to upgrade to 4gb, do I buy 4gb or just an extra 2? (i.e. do I remove the ram thats already there or just add to it?)

    2) Are there any specific specs I need?

    3) Any recommendations?

    I was looking at this one on macmall:

    but it seems so cheap...is it relaly a good deal?

    You know, there's a thread on this topic happening right now. SEARCH.

    Do it yourself. Cheaper.

    Well obviously. I did search....I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for, I could only find specs for Macbook Pro and no real suggestions. Could you point me to the thread?
