Thank you everyone for your replies. My mac will only support 4GB which I have already uprgraded.

Are you sure about the 4GB? OWC states the MBP 5.1 with 2.4GHz processor supports 8GB RAM with latest EFI version and OS-X 10.6.6:

Anyway an other relativly easy to do and affortable speed update for the MBP would be to rip out the DVD drive and install a SSD for OS-X, caches and Lightroom Catalog:

I did that when I realised I don't use the DVD drive anyway in my MBP. With a fast 50GB SSD and a 1TB HDD for files Lightroom and PS are mutch faster than in the stock configuration with a single HDD.
