RAM is pretty cheap and really makes a difference under OSX. It is worth the investment, far more than say a 7,200 rpm drive, for the average user.

It was only $150 to put in 2 GB. Yes, I have a useless set of 256 MB chips from my MacBook now, but OSX and Rosetta eat RAM like a Japanese hot dog champion. Well worth the extra $75.
