    Have a 2.4mhz uMB wiht 2gigram. I will upgrade to 4gig by the end of the year since prices have fallin dramatically.

    But with Snow leopard coming out and supporting more ram, will the uMB 2008 also support more than 4gig ram when SL is installed?

    Leopard supports more than 8gb ram, so its not a software issue, its a hardware limitation. Your motherboard might not recognize more than 4gb depending on the mdoel.

    Some websites said the uMB support up to 6 gb of ram, but if apple releases a simple driver it goes up to 8 gb.

    Maybe with Snow Leopard we will see, maybe apple will only make it work for the unibody macbook pros.
