I bought my MacBook Pro with 4GB of RAM already in it. I need it too, just look at my Dock:

And that's not including the 4 menubar applications that don't have Dock icons."Now everyone calm the hell down and let me think about how to clean up your mess, while you build me a monument dedicated to how awesome I am."

It was really easy to install... but if you get more mem just make sure you have a tiny tiny little screw driver.... a phillips by the way.... I had more problems finding a small enough screw driver for it and my center screw was screwed in pretty tight.. but once I got the screws out within seconds I had the new memory installed, put back together and booted it up and headed for the apple and there it was!
It cost me around $100.00 for two.... two gig chips... now I have two laying around that I am not using.. and I just bought this laptop a couple of months ago...

I thought I would add... my Macbook is a 2.4 with four gigs now and my IMac is a 2.8 with two gigs.... when I get some more money I will upgrade my IMac as well.... one can never have enough memory today...
As for your docks... wow what are all the programs that you guys are using? I don't have one extra icon on my dock, my dock is just like it when I bought it... I made a stack and keep my programs in the stack...
I can let you know later as right now I am in the process of installing apps from the store... ;O)

As for my IMac I am sure it will improve performance... but for my Macbook I just couldn't take its performance anymore so that is why I upgraded it first...
