    Right now I'm running this............

    Model Name: MacBook
    Model Identifier: MacBook2,1
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2.16 GHz
    Number Of Processors: 1
    Total Number Of Cores: 2
    L2 Cache: 4 MB
    Memory: 2 GB
    Bus Speed: 667 MHz
    Boot ROM Version: MB21.00A5.B07
    SMC Version: 1.17f0

    I understand that 2 gig was the max, but the new ones go to 4. Is that a motherboard issue or can I get two 2 gig strips of 667MHz DDR2 and pop 'em in there?

    You can't get four, but if you put two 2GB sticks in, it will read 3.3GB.
