I've found a good video that shows how to upgrade the memory on a MacBook in about 3 minutes...

If you plan on doing the RAM and hd anytime soon, you might as well do them at the same time. Could get both done in 10 minutes or less and only have to remove the cover thing once.

My HD swap took a little bit longer. I had to make a run to Home Depot to get a Torque screwdriver.

I upgraded both the memory and the hard drive on my macbook. Both were really easy to do. You can google for videos and all kinds of guides. OR you can read your user manual.

RTFM!!!

Very Happy Very Happy
