So I am finally on my first mac! I went to the apple store today and bought this white 2.4GHz macbook! I just put 4GB of ram in from crucial. It took about 3 minutes! lol. I love this machine. I just have one question. I ran geekbench right before I went from 2GB ram to 4GB and it is still showing the same numbers. Both times were around 3150 total score. Did I install the ram incorrectly. How can I check to see if all 4Gb are being recognized?

If your computer booted up, it's probably installed okay

Go to About This Mac and see if it says 4GB

Hi there :)

Press the little :apple: in the top left hand corner of your screen. Then hit 'About This Mac'. It should show you the installed memory.

Look under "About this Mac" (under the apple menu).

No. It is the 2.4 White macbook with a 160 GB hard drive. I was not willing to pay 200 more just for color. lol. I do like the black ones better though. I will be getting a 200GB 7200rpm hitachi drive soon.
