    I have a Early 2008 MacBook ('Penryn'), and it said that its RAM can only be upgraded to 4GB, yet I have 6GB (refer to screenshot). I was just wondering how its functioning with 6GB RAM (and yes, it truly runs as 6GB RAM!)... out of curiosity :rolleyes:

    yes early 2008 polycarb macbooks can run up to 6 GB of RAM, but only by having a stick of 2GB and a 4GB stick....

    however its not faster than 2x2GB matched sticks
    and its not recommended by apple
