Crap. I just moved my 5,1 macbook to 4gb from 2gb last week. Oh well, maybe I'll jump it again in a few months....

I ordered a 8GB RAM for my Mac Mini from OWC for $100. It also works with iMac and Mac Laptops I think.

I know stuff that you don't know that's probably old, but because I've known it for years don't make it any less important! By the response of this post I guess it's safe to say a lot of us didn't know this. Either come with some more news yourself now or just please don't bother to post! Thanks for this op you might have just saved me a few bucks as I can buy an older MacBook now

Unless you are a prolific multi-tasker (or gamer) I dont see what 4gb or 8gb really buys. Especially on a tiny laptop screen. I mean how much can you multi-task and what the heck are people running that demands so much memory?
I have had many computers and with the exception of my gaming computer...I see no added value above 2gb (especially given todays HDD speeds). Someone help me understand their need. Maybe I am missing something.

And on a day to day basis i use my macbook 2.4 core duo to run:
-Server 2008 enterprise
-Server 2008 enterprise II
in parallels virtual environment while in class to simulate our labs
as well as running word / excel / chicken of the vnc to do other class work at the same time.
so 3 VM's plus OS X running at the same time....
As to how all this is accomplished at once on a small 13" screen......its called spaces and its a feature of MAC OS X
Everyones needs are different, just putting it out there
