    I was searching through the forums and came across this post:

    What is up with that??? i thought you could only upgrade to 4.0GB RAM for the Alum Macbook.

    That's what Apple says!!! http://www.apple.com/macbook/specs.html

    so, will this work if i can get 2x 3GB Sticks and do this?? i really want more than standard 4GB Ram cuz i do really ram intensive stuff...

    So then what kinda ram works for this (i've heard horror stories about how picky Macbooks are about RAM. :eek: )

    will it work with 2x 3GB ?? cuz two sticks of the same capacity allow you to use dual channel for better speed... :D

    Has anyone actually pulled this off? -- the reason i'm asking is because i'm saving up money to buy an alum. Macbook 2.4Ghz --> my used Black MB is just not enough (graphics wise)

    apple doesnt always have the right limits stated
