    Nothing today. But you never know down the road. If I'm plunking down $2k+ on a computer it's going to last me at least 5 years and who knows what we'll see in that 5 years.

    Growl wants $4 for an update when I have one app that uses it. Hmmm. Don't think so.

    And just my luck. Today after finally doing a boot camp install of Windows 7 Parallels goes on sale for $50. Ugh.

    no one needs 16 GB of ram, but ram is SO cheap. no reason not to. which is why expensive ram upgrades are stupid.

    I just upgraded my Windows laptop from 4Gb to 8Gb of RAM - it cost 17.95 - how much is a similar upgrade for a MAC and why can't you do it yourself?

    The RAM is soldered to the motherboard. Also the SSD used is not a normal one. You can upgrade it yourself but only OCZ makes one and it's over $500 for a 480GB drive. Yikes!

    That's a video of the swap. Pretty simple but the drives are so expensive right now.

    Parallels. 16GB isn't needed now but down the road as OSX and Windows evolve I'm sure each would benefit from more RAM especially when being run at the same time.

    I use to have 16gb of ram in my 13 inch pro I had and loved it. But honestly with the ssd and 8gbs of ram my retina runs much better than any laptop I have owned. Hell any computer I have owned and have had 16 different macs in the the last 3 years

    guys, i have a $100 absolute max budget for multimedia speakers. They can be PC speakers, they can be refurb (if they have a 1 year+ warranty), or they can be actual like amp speakers (must include price of an amp/reciever, i can think of a working mini amp for $20.) Can you guys think of ANYTHING? i should mention i would prefer a 2.1 setup, but i dont need major bass, just enough to play music/games/movies normally in better quality then now. so 2.0 if it has some sort of bass is fine. thanks to any of yall that can help...

    When i got them I was kinda iffy, but they are pretty amazing for what they are. Check elsewhere for better prices on them. I would easily pay $75 to get another set
