    Hi Guys,
    I currently have the MacBook Pro 3,1 (with the silver backlit keyboard) and would like to upgrade the RAM. At the moment it has 2x1GB but would like to take it up to the maximum amount that it can read, which I've heard is 4GB??
    The problem I'm having is find the right RAM, would RAM with a speed of 800MHz be better then 667MHz, or would it just be incompatible?
    At the moment my MacBook Pro is a bit sluggish and I love having thing's opening as quick as possible and as it will be my primary computer in the not too distant future, I want to have it as responsive as possible.

    The specs for the installed RAM are as follows

    Size:1GB
    Type: DDR2 SDRAM
    Speed: 667MHz

    Thanks Guys, I really don't have a clue, and there seems to be so many different types of RAM and all at different prices!

    Thanks in advance

    Jack

    Hi 'fun173'
    Thanks very much!
    Just a question, is Crucial a quality brand? How does it compare to Kingston or other brands?

    I have heard nothing bad about crucial and have used it myself, and it works fine.

    No problem :)
