    My macbook pro (13" screen) from 2006 has the:
    Processor- 2 GHz Intel Core Duo
    Memory- 512 MB 667 MHz RAM

    I want to buy more RAM so things are faster. Should be easy to order/buy and install, but I can't quite figure out what exactly to get...?

    I think the max i can have is 2GB total instead of 512 MB, and there are 2 slots...?

    Should I walk into a Mac store to buy the RAM or just get something from Other World Computing online? (http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/memory/Apple_MacBook_MacBook_Pro/Upgrade)

    200-pin SODIMM 2 x 1GB DDR2-667 is what you need. "2 x 1GB" means 2 modules of 1GB RAM each to occupy both slots in the machine and is also the max for your machine.

    if you're unable to figure out how to order that from OWC, then i suggest you go to a computer store so someone can be there to hand you the correct modules.
