    Right now I'm at 256mb with my pbook and I want to upgrade RAM. The price difference between the two is $70 for the 512 vs $230 for the 1 gig. Combining price and performance into the equation, which is a better upgrade path for me? I wouldn't mind saving some money but if the difference between 1.25gigs vs 768 is worth it, then I'd do it.

    So what do you guys think or did yourselves? I don't do anything graphic intensive, just the typical web browsing with multiple windows, Adium, iTunes, some Word documents etc.

    ive got 512 in mine and it hums. when it feels slow, if ever, i'll sell the 2 x 256 thats in here and get 2 x 512 or take one out and get 1 x 512.

    i think you'd be ok 768

    Yea, 768 will be just fine for what you use it for.
