    I just got a previous gen MBP from the Apple Refurb store when the new ones came out.

    It came with 2GB originally. I dont need more RAM for right now. However, How do i find out if the RAM in the machine right now is occupying both the RAM slots or just one?

    I dont wanna open the baby

    Go to About This Mac -> More Info -> Memory

    This will show you what is occupying each slot. You can upgrade to 4GB of RAM if it is the previous SR MBP.

    I'm pretty sure it's 2x 1GB, but you can go to System Profiler, Memory and it will tell you what's in each slot.

    (Apple menu, About this Mac, then click on More Info... (or hold down the OPT when clicking on the Apple menu, and select System Profiler...).

    If I were a bettin' man I would say there is a 1 gig stick in each slot, however I am neither a gambler nor a male, so you'll have to see for yourself. ;)

    Hope that helps!!!

    EDIT: Ha, crazy when I started typing this no one had replied yet :) The method mentioned above my post takes you to the same place, just faster. :)
