    I have an old Blackbook from 2008 (I believe the last year they made in the black Macbook) and gave it to my parents a while ago after I got my Air. Anyways it's been slugging lately and have been considering buying some RAM to upgrade it. I want to max out the amount of RAM the laptop can take and was wondering if anyone could suggest any that would be fairly inexpensive. I've never swapped RAM or upgraded before which is why I ask. Thanks for the help.

    From the sounds of things it seems that the black MacBook [URL='http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/macbook/specs/macbook-core-2-duo-2.4-black-13-early-2008-penryn-specs.html]has similar specs[/URL] to the later white ones, so even though it's for the (later) white MacBooks iFixit should be able to help. If the computer doesn't have any spare slots for more RAM though you won't be able to do it.

    According to Mactracker the last black macbook produced was the MB404LL/A, early 2008, macbook4,1, 2.4ghz. It can support 6gb ram (200-pin PC2-5300 (667MHz) DDR2 SO-DIMM). You can remove the ram in one slote and add a 4gb stick ($50).

    Go with installing 2X2 GB. Don't bother with unmatched sets.
