    Looking to buy 3-4 gigs for my old white macbook, any good deals, or what is a decent price to pay.

    Also should i get 3 or 4 gigs, my macbook will only support 3.2 gigsish,

    thanks

    About $25 for a 2GB stick from newegg. The 1GB sticks are about $16. I would do the full 4GB to get the added benefit of dual-channel in the last 1GB for $9.

    Remember if you have a Macbook that wasn't a Late 2007 Santa Rosa or later the RAM limit is 3 GB, or 2 GB of dual channel matching RAM.

    Rule of Thumb: If macbook has Intel X3100 or Nvida Graphics it can use up to 4 GB
    But if it has Intel GMA 950 if can only do 2 or 3.
    The original Core Solo Macbook from 2006 can only do 2 gigs.
