Can somebody please direct me how to do it, where and which memory to buy?
The Macbook uses DDR2 PC2-5300 Ram, just like the MBP (of that vintage). In order to get 3GB of RAM you have to install a 1GB and a 2GB DIMM, but it won't be dual channel (which means there will be a small performance hit). You could shell out the big bucks and get two 2GB DIMMs, but the MB will only recognize 3GB out of the 4GB. This is an Intel problem, which was addressed with the release of the Santa Rosa platform (now in the iMacs and MBPs).
I guess I actually didn't answer your questions...
Instructions on how to upgrade are here:
Here is the RAM I would recommend:
2GB DIMM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820208323
1GB DIMM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820208314
Thank you very much!
