My new Macbook pro is ace. However, it came by default with 2gb RAM. Fair enough. But the other day, when I tried to load TWO virtual partitions, as well as Notes and Photoshop on the Mac, well - it unsurprisingly ground to a halt. "Damn", I thought. Time to get that 4gb memory upgrade that I should have got with the machine.. One trip to Crucial and I snagged two 2gb DIMMS for the sum total of £90. Yup. So my £1200 Macbook pro with 4gb comes in at under £1300. Nice.
And now - even with two virtual XP machines - it flies..
