    would upgrading my blackbook from 1gb to 2gb affect the battery life in any way?

    where is a good place to order?

    is the mighty mouse the best bluetooth mouse?

    im sure this has been asked, no search FTL :sadwavey:

    thanks :)

    personally, I hate mighty mouse. and as far as I know, RAM doesn't affect battery life enough for you to notice.

    benefits of 2gb of RAM far outweigh the possible loss of battery life

    there is no such thing as mac ram. ram is ram since the second gen imac back in like 98. no need for mac specific.

    go to crucial.com to find out what you need, then order it from newegg.com for cheaper.

    Ok, so if it only costs $100 for 2GB stick of RAM, how come it costs $700 to upgrade from 2GB to 4GB when you buy a MBP online?

    more ram = less paging to the hard drive = better battery life
