    Hi, I just got me a Macbook and I some questions, this is my first mac and my first time using OS X.

    1. Where can I get more memory? It came with 2 gigabytes DDR3 memory and was thinking of upgrading it to 4. What brands do you guys recommend?

    2. Does this thing have a bios setup?

    3. After updating the software, Help no longer works when I am offline. Anybody know how to fix this?

    Thanks, the 320gb 7,200rpm hard drive and 4gb ram upgrade seems to be priced ok, cheaper than Apple's. They seem to be pushing that 4gb ram module, the price is just ridiculous.

    memroryx is what I use but Compusa ( corsair memory works great ), btw I have DDR2 PC2-5300 in mine and I wasn't aware that you could upgrade to 4gbs, I thought that was only for Macbook pros.

    No, theirs a pram that you might have to zap but no such thing as BIOS


    3. After updating the software, Help no longer works when I am offline. Anybody know how to fix this?

    Sorry, Can't help you on that one

    The new ones run on DDR3 1066, so far the only brands I found are Kingston, OCZ and Crucial. Corsair does not have a DDR3 SODIMM available yet.
