Re: IMAC or macbook pro - advise from Mac users please!
It's VERY easy to upgrade the RAM yourself in iMacs. Easy as pouring piss out of a boot.
Why do I use that analogy? Because both have the instructions written on the heel. ^_^
(Honestly, when you lay the iMac on it's face to access the RAM, you suddenly find that they've printed the full RAM upgrade instructions on the bottom of the iMac's "foot".)
