2GB in < 10 minutes

It's always an adventure. We've had my daughter's new MacBook just a little less than two weeks now, but I just finished installing two 1GB memory sticks (from OWC, thanks Larry) and it booted up and sees 2GB! Not that I ever doubted it would. ;)

While not exactly easy, it couldn't be much more simple. You do have to really push those suckers in place and there's always that feeling of using a little too much effort and hearing a 'snap' or worse.

And there seems to be some conflicting info on the Apple site. To wit:

In one swift motion, use your thumb or index finger to move the lever to the left and release it. This swift motion ejects the memory card, and the lever then springs back to the starting position. Pull out the memory module(s).
Note: If any of the following issues occur, see an Apple-authorized service technician to complete the memory card installation:

* lever wobbles
* lever offers no resistance
* lever is stuck
* lever does not return to starting position

Well, it didn't, and it gave me pause, but then later they say:

If the levers don't return to the closed position, move them to the right to close them.

Anyway, all's well, at least for the time being. Let's see if she even notices a difference.
