memory

I have the Mac Book Pro
lion 10.7.4
Intel Core i7
4 GB Memory

I had it in to Apple a couple times as I get the spinning color wheel often
they say nothing is wrong, but it seems to be slowing down at times, I have my firewall up and using virus protection just to be safe,
Would updating to 8 GB of memory help? This is my first mac book pro,
I had it about a year,
Thanks for any suggestions. also if I updated the memory do I need to do it with Apple to keep the 4 year extended warrentee I have?

I know nothing at all about Mac's. I'd sure wait for someone to reply who does know. Especially about (also if I updated the memory do I need to do it with Apple to keep the 4 year extended warrentee I have).

That is exactly what I would do. Especially since it's under warranty.

Absolutely what I would do too! I sure wouldn't rely on possibly out of date 3rd party information when you do have a good warranty, don't want to do something that could void that warranty, that alone is probably worth it's weight in gold!
Here is some reading for your enjoyment pleasure
Might give you an idea at least of what you to ask them concerning a memory upgrade when you do speak with them. At least it will let them know that you are doing your homework and doing it in the right place to satisfy your warranty too.
