    I'm sorry for making a separate thread for this but I've been having a pretty rough time trying to figure out what type of Ram to get. I am using a 2.16 GHz Intel Core Duo Macbook Pro currently with 1 GB of ram. According to the Wikipedia link on the thread lobby for this section it says I can have a max of 2 GB ram for MBP's with the Core Duo. Is this true? If so which type of Ram do I need? Does 667 MHz DDR2 (PC2-5300) SO-DIMM sound right? If that is right will any pair of 1 GB Ram cards work or is there a specific type I should buy?

    Please let me know, this is killing me!! Thanks!

    that is true, 2gb is the max for core duo macs, the type of ram you need is DDRII memory with support for DDR2 PC2-5300 speeds that is sodimm. I recommend crucial as they guarantee compatibility if you select you macbook model. Also, depending on the ram configuration now you may need to replace both your modules.
