I was wondering, if I were to bring my Macbook into and Apple Store, would I able to leave it and have them upgrade RAM for me? I would like to have more, but am a bit nervous to do the task myself, as easy as it may be. And any idea on cost would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

MacBook Pro 13" (Mid 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.1), 2.26 GHz, 2GB Memory, 160 GB HD

    Any Apple Store or Apple Authorised Service Provider (AASP) will be able to upgrade your RAM for you, eluve59.

    You can find Apple Authorised Service Providers in Canada by using the "locator" at http://www.apple.com/ca/buy/locator/

    If you go through an Apple Store then you will find that the cost of the RAM itself is high ($220CA for 4 GB (in 2x 2 GB modules) according to the Apple Canada website). At an AASP it is likely that you will be offered a choice of the official "Apple" RAM at the same price, or the option of lower priced good quality "third party" RAM for substantially less (4 GB of equivalent high quality RAM is available for $100CA or less from many suppliers). The fitting cost should not be high in either case. It is a very simple job.

    Cheers
