Ok, I just need to know if this is posible to have 8gb in a Macbook 5.2. I bought it in October 2009 from the Apple store,. It is not a unibody.

Anyway is 6gb my max, or can i go for the full 8gb?

( F.Y.I. 2-4gb sticks of ram are already on the way so i'm hoping for the 8gb.)

Thanks so much!

You can find specs on all Apple products, including maximum RAM:
  • By visiting EveryMac.com: Actual Maximum RAM
  • By using Mactracker
  • By entering your serial number here to find specs for your model. (Be aware that some models can use more RAM than Apple shows. Check EveryMac or MacTracker to verify.)

OK, It says i can only handle 6gb. Some other forums on here still suggest i can run 8gb of ram. They say that is the case with 5.1 and 5.2 and up.

Matter126: Did it work?

If the 8GB didn't work, are you running with a 2GB + 4GB setup to get to 6GB?

If it did, what was the brand of the memory you bought?
