    Probably my most straight forward question yet lol.

    I have a 4GB MBP. It's a MBP from mid 2010. Been doing more movie and music work as of late and the 4GB is havin a little trouble keeping up at times. So wanna jack it up to the 8GB.

    I was wondering where the best place to purchase the RAM upgrade would be, id also like to know if this is something i can do myself and if so what tools would i need (links to all this would be appreciated).

    Thanks for the help all.

    You can upgrade to 8 GB RAM quite easily, you need 1066 MHz 204-pin DDR3 SO-DIMM RAM, you can get it from Newegg or Crucial. It should cost around 50 USD and less.


    PS: Some 2010 MBPs are reported to support 16 GB of RAM, but check MRoogle for that.

    PPS: What video editing application do you use?

    Look up crucial.com, you can get the exact ram chip number.
    Installing is easy, just have to get the #0 screw driver and get the 10 screws out and you will see the ram slot, make sure you install the chip snug tight.
    watch this video might help http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0EFRHdREdqw
