I just upgraded my 13" MacBook Pro (mid-2009) from 2 GB of memory to 8 GB of RAM. What a difference!

I'm wondering what I can/should do with the old sticks.

Several threads on MacRumors say to keep it for troubleshooting and/or if you need to send it in for warranty service:

    Very good research - you do indeed want to keep them if you ever want to send your mac to Apple for service. It causes them extra work to remove that ram and perhaps slows down your testing / repair and they won't know for sure it's fixed - just that your mac runs better with their testing RAM.

Find some more RAM pieces and then make the Byte Light. :)
