Is this correct? Apple's site states "the MacBook Pro (C2D) will only support 3 GB total memory". So don't bother going up to 4 GB, or is there a way to get around this? Also, is it safe to assume that as long as I purchase 3rd-party memory that meets Apple's specs and install it correctly myself that I will not void Apple Care T&C's? Thanks

Thanks for the quick reply. Why then does Apple give the option to buy a MBP with up to 4GB then?

D'oh!!! Meh...what can you do. I've read a few different threads talking up Crucial for memory. Any thoughts?

There are 2 different versions of the Core 2 Duo mobile processor chipsets.

The first version (Napa) only allows access to 3 GB of memory, this is the chipset in the Core Duo up to the previous generation Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro.

The second version (Santa Rosa) which is in the current MacBook Pro allows 4 GB of RAM.
