    I have a MacBook White

    Model Name: MacBook
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2.2 GHz
    Total Number Of Cores: 2
    L2 Cache: 4 MB
    Memory: 1 GB
    Bus Speed: 800 MHz

    I know I should have got it with more RAM, but......

    Question 1)
    Can I add 3 GB RAM, or do I have to toss the 1GB and add 4 GB

    Question 2)
    What is the most reliable vendor/best price to buy RAM for the MacBook?

    Thanks!

    1. The 1 G is one stick. Just replace it and use 2 2 G sticks.

    2. I got mine from OWC for $90 something.

    It makes a big difference. The more RAM the happier Mac.

    In my Santa Rosa MacBook, it came with two 512mb sticks of Ram, one in each slot, making one gig.

    So, to add 3gb, you'll have to get rid of both and get a 1gb and a 2gb stick, but then you may as well get 2x2gb sticks, as ram always works best in matched pairs.

    Hope this helps.
