    I just popped a 2Gb stick of ram into my 15" MBP and ran before and after geekbench. The only noticeable performance hit since I'm no longer running in dual-channel mode came in my Write Sequential score which went from 1.40 GB/Sec to 1.25 GB/Sec and Stdlib Allocate went from 7.37 Mallocs/sec to 6.24 Mallocs/sec. Now the Write Sequential I'm going to assume isn't going to be a noticeable hit to me but correct me if I'm wrong on that, is the Stdlib Allocate (what is it even?) going to be noticeable? I do some minor photoshop stuff, will do more once I get a DSLR but right now it's mostly web surfing, the occasional movie in iMovie 06 for my folks and the like. What's your opinion on any potential noticeable performance hit?

    Well, so far I can't notice a performance difference at all so I'm happy :)
