    I was wondering if I can upgrade from 2 gigs of RAM to 8 gigs with no trouble. I doubt this, but just wondering.

    Many thanks in advance!


    Mac OSX 10.6.8

    Processor 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    Memory 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM

    Yep although if you want to save some money any macbook pro starting from the Macbook Pro 5.1 supports 8gb ram.

    I believe 3.3gb is the max. You can install 4gb, but only 3.3 is recognized.

    Correct. Only 3.3 GB recognized, currently what I have on my 2,1 MacBook.

    From here:
    You can find specs on all Apple products, including maximum RAM:
    • By visiting EveryMac.com: Actual Maximum RAM
    • By using Mactracker
    • By entering your serial number here to find specs for your model. (Be aware that some models can use more RAM than Apple shows. Check EveryMac or MacTracker to verify.)
