    Do you need 750GB or 1TB for space? The 750 is also a 7200RPM drive, so a little speed bump comes along with that one. Cant really go wrong with either really.

    Why not get 8GB RAM? It's so cheap at the moment.

    No, the 2008 Aluminium MacBooks now support 8GB RAM, after a firmware update (there was never a hardware limitation). I have the same MacBook as you, and I'm running 8GB.

    Oh wow never knew that pretty sweet so you think i should just slam 8gb in my macbook, and the rest in my imac ? Or should i even it out ? My imac is the i7 4gb so it will have 8gb in my imac, and 6 in my macbook it's pretty powerful right now.
