    I am looking at purchasing the $999 macbook and instead of upgrading through apple from 2 gb ram up to 4 gb ram, I am planning on buying third party ram, which is a lot cheaper.

    Am I correct in thinking that the max ram is 4 gb on the current 2.0ghz macbook model? So I should only buy a 2gb stick to be added to the stock 2gb stick, equalling 4? And not a 4gb stick which would equal 6gb.

    RAM is installed in pairs. You need to buy 2x2GB sticks to take it up to 4GB, removing the 2 1GB sticks that are currently in there.

    I don't know about 6GB, you'd need a 2GB and a 4GB stick and those 4GB sticks are pretty expensive.
