    word. ram makes all the difference. i have a 1.83 G4 and it's alright, but it will haul for what i do when i finally can afford to put in more ram. i'm not a baller like the rest of OT.

    Did your Macbook originally came with 2G RAM? If so, how much of a difference do you notice? I do plan on upgrading to 2gigs, but not sure exactly if I need it at the moment.

    I'm in the same boat, I would love to get 2GB, but the price of 1GB is even high... I'm thinking it will be enough though...

    1giga should make a pretty good difference if you like to multi-task at all. before when i had 512, it would sit at ~400 mb ram being used... pretty much maxed out, and things would run SLOW. even if i put 1gb in it would have helped out a lot, now with 2giga, doing normal things like ,azureus, adium, firefox, iTunes at the same time my used ram hovers in the 700 mb used area.

    so 1giga should do the trick.
