Did you upgrade your MacBook's RAM after purchase?
Yeah, my RAM should be arriving in a couple days, so I guess I really haven't upgraded yet. I'm excited to see the difference between the 512 stock and the 2GB I ordered.
Apple upped the RAM offered, according to the latest rumor.
You needed an option for those of us who bought 1GB from Apple. I'm rarely if ever under 512MB wired + active memory on my Core-Duo Mini, but can keep it under 1GB if I'm careful.
I just ordered 1GB from NewEgg yesterday, and will get another one when I can afford it. Despite RAM upgrades being kind of overpriced from Apple, it's good that they're offering other configurations in the retail stores. 512MB and no more is kind of a paltry offering.
Went from 512MB to 2GB the same day.
When I got my MacBook Pro I immediately upgraded the RAM to 1.5GB.
512MB is just not enough to run Mac OS X properly.
I just bought my first mac last wednesday:
White Macbook 2.0 Ghz
I love the computer, but I'm finding 512 Mb's isn't enough. I ordered 2 Gb's from Newegg. I can't wait to install it.
You will really enjoy the boost in performance 2GB of RAM offers.
i thought 512 was enough... until i got 2 gigs. now its SCREAMMMIN!!!! whoohoo
But it's standard, so it's not like they're offering you less for the same price. Their price on the MacBook is competitive; their RAM offering is competitive.
I agree with what you said though. It's just that the low cost of a MB doesn't include more RAM than 512MB. It still isn't an expensive system, and you did get what you paid for.
just installed 2GB - beautiful.
Not easy to install them though, ended up calling apple support
Almost had to use a sledge hammer to have them properly seated into their slots
I got my 2Ghz MB about a month ago, the ram was extremely difficult to get but eventually I found 2 x 1GB sticks which I put in the moment my MB arrived and before even turning it on for the first time.
I do digital art and music so the ram is much needed for me.
Macbook Ram Upgrade Details
I agree 512mb doesn't cut it! I run alot of audio programs and 512 doesn't cut the mustard at all for that. What I need to know, however, are details.
What type of ram to buy? It looks like 200-pin DDR2 SO-DIMM
Can I go 1 GB stick plus a 512mb to add to my current 512mb to get to 2GB (which is where I'm goin')
Looks like I could go 2 1GB sticks by Mushkin for about $220, $130 less than Apple's $350 price. Do we like NewEgg.com?
And does anyone know what the number after DDR2 (ie 667 or 533) indicates?
This is my first laptop after years of desktops and I'm lovin it! I need this RAM upgrade though!
why is this under mac pro and power mac... if I had a macbook I would definitely upgrade.
dude...you cant have a gig and 2 512 meg sticks...your macbook only has two memory banks so you can only have two sticks... also the numbers after DDR2 is the bus speed or something...im not particulaly sure...what i do know is that the macbook needs 667 ram...i recomend getting two 1 gigabyte sticks fromn newegg.com now you can get them for round 60 bucks
yes, from 1 to 2 GB via OWC...
hey thanks for bumping a thread that's over a year old.
And on the wrong forum
