    Hi there,
    i'm debating on macbook memory upgrade. i want to upgrade memories on my macbook 2007

    Model Name: MacBook
    Model Identifier: MacBook2,1
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2 GHz
    Number Of Processors: 1
    Total Number Of Cores: 2
    L2 Cache: 4 MB
    Memory: 1 GB
    Bus Speed: 667 MHz

    i think the maximum capacity is up to 3 GB. , so wondering what's the best pair matching for most efficient result.

    2 x 1 GB.
    1x 1 GB. + 1x 2GB.
    2 x 2 GB.

    could you help.

    thanks for replying,
    i did searched but still can't decide. if i use 1x2gb. it can run dual channel but don't get the maximum capacity, but with 1gb + 2gb. it look like i'll get full load but it'll run asymmetrical or if i use 2x2gb. run dual channel symmetric but only get 3gb., so waste money. that's why i doubt about getting most efficient ram upgrade. correct me if i'm wrong because i'm a newbie and not sure how much different performance between asymmetric and symmetric.

    Not enough difference for you to notice. If you followed the 2nd link I posted, it would lead you to this:
