I needed a backup laptop to take to uni and things like that and I was scouring eBay and bought a 2.16 ghz one for about 500 which was a bargain! Works great.

Been using a Mac Pro in college and I found Macs simple to use, although obviously different to Windows, and I wanted a change of pace from Vista.

Am I right in that the macbook will only use 3.3gb of RAM if I install 4 gigs?

Where do you college kids get the money to own both a Mac Pro and a MacBook? :confused:

yes, you're right. your 2.16 ghz macbook will only address 3.3 gb if you have 4 gb installed. check out this macrumors guide (http://guides.macrumors.com/Understanding_Intel_Mac_RAM) on intel mac ram.

I'm assuming it's in England where College and University are separate educational institutions.
