    • Lift the memory door up enough to get a grip on it, and slide it toward you, pulling it away from the casing.

    • Release the tabs on each side of the RAM chip at the same time. These tabs lock the chip in place and releasing them will cause the chip to "pop" up.

    • Pull the chip directly out from its connector.

    • If there are two RAM chips installed, repeat the above procedure for the second chip.

I just used this guide to add a 4 GB chip to my MBP. Easy peasy. I have a 6 GB MBP. Seems way faster, but could be wishful thinking. But for less than a hundred bucks its not a wasted experiment.
