    I don't think 3Gb sticks exist: 1x2Gb, 1x4Gb.

    On the up side if you have 4Gb now you only have to buy 1 4Gb stick rather than 2 3Gb sticks :)

    Did you even look at the screenshots? The OP has 2 GB RAM.

    Yeah, but be warned, 4 GB sticks are usually VERY expensive. I'm trying to find one to put in my early 2009 MacBook (currently it has 4 GB of RAM installed.)

    While 4GB of 667 may be $50 (twice 1333), I'd hardly call it VERY expensive.

    That said, it's no use going to 6GB and taking the performance hit of not running in matched pairs (4GB matched will run better than 6GB mixed).

    That Macbook can actually take and use 8Gb of ram. But some sites report that it is slightly unstable when it has that much ram in it.
