Damn you, Apple, for coming out with a 2G memory version of my Mac less than two months after I bought it! Do you know how much that upgrade costs, all by itself from the apple store? $200! Grrr. And NOW it comes free with the cost of the Macbook. At least, my model.

ETA: Just bought 4 Gigs of Ram for my MacBook from Newegg for $100, shipping included. The same thing would cost me $400 from the Mac Store. Take that Apple!

Buy the memory on newegg and install it yourself. :-)

Ah, yes, Newegg! I'd planned to look there, and just hadn't gotten around to it yet. Thanks, I'll go look now. :)

I noticed that, too.

Apple releases like every six months or so with a new, improved version. It's one of their thangs.

This happened to me and my Vaio. A couple of months after I bought it, they released an even better one (like, double the specs) for less than I'd paid for mine :P

But, as a friend of mine says, if you keep waiting for the next version to come out, you'll never get to enjoy it at all. :D

I hate how they do their upgrades.

Um, I have a website where they sell Apple products at a discount. I got the address from one of the Mac Geniuses at the Genius Bar when I needed to upgrade my memory. I don't have the card on me here at home, but if you're interested, I can give you the addy once I'm back in Ann Arbor.

Are Macs upgradeable? I'd always been under the impression that they either weren't, or it was REALLY difficult to do it.

I know our MacBooks have easy-to-upgrade RAM and HD. Apparently the previous generations required you to practically pull the entire thing apart to get to any of that, but this generation you just remove the battery, and lo, there is your easy-to-pop-out RAM and HD.

Which in a laptop, is all you can really mess with easily anyway.

Awesome. Good to know if I decide to upgrade my MacBook!

(Probably not, since I just use it to write...)
