Because of the way it's configured (2 256MB RAM sticks in a total of 2 available slots), you couldn't just slap in a 512 upgrade and be set, you'd have to first rip out the existing sticks and replace them with two new 512 sticks, which would cost you twice as much as it would to simply upgrade through Mac themselves.

Cool, thanks. All really helpful advice... I will have to get to an apple store at some point and check them both out. I'm also trying to convince my parents that a Mac is superior to a PC for taking notes, making diagrams, etc for law school, but they are both die hard PC people and so far I'm having a hard time explaining it to them. I'd be using a PC for exams, but I feel that in every other aspect a Mac would be better than a PC. Can anyone think of anything concrete I could tell them?
