    Can someone confirm that the MacBook motherboard DOES support Single Channel setup for RAM (ie mismatched RAM pairs say 256MB+1GB tot 1.25GB)

    Thanks:)

    There are some benchmarks out of a 2.0 MB (512) vs. a 2.0 MBP (2 GB) and the results were almost the same. Not sure if the ram played a huge roll in that, but it seems that 1 GB would be enough to get some awesome performance out of these.
