    Where should I get it? I have a MacBookPro with 1 gig already and want to double that. Also, is it easy to put in?

    figure out which to get on crucialmemory.com then buy the same stick off new egg for about $50 cheaper. but i'd def reccomend crucial memory.

    super easy
    1) take off the battery
    2) remove the 2 or 3 screws holding the plate in
    3) place ram in
    4) replace screws / replace battery

    should take you about 2-3 minutes

    crucial is the way to go.

    just make sure you've got a single 1GB stick in your MB currently, as opposed to 2 x 512 :hs:

    you can check that in system profiler

    edit: assuming you have a mac and that's why you noted it was an .exe file
