Default Macbook Pro Upgrade?

Hey,
Wondering what's the deal with macbook's and being able to upgrade the RAM after buying one with 2Gb up to 4Gb.
Is it possible?
That's the ony upgrade I'm wanting to do, since the cost of building the thing (through the Apple site) with 4Gb is gonna cost an extra $1000.
Thanks.

Defenitley possible. I know you can use up to 3 gigs but i'm not sure about 4. You don't need to buy apple ram. I've talked to many people that own macs and apple makes a lot of money off of people buying their ram. You just have to make sure the ram is the right speed.

Main concern with purchasing from Apple straight up is that it costs way too much but I really want 4Gb.

On the Apple site you can choose to expand to 4Gb so I'm guessing that it can run 4Gb.
