    I have a similar question. I have a late 2006 black book as well, intel core 2 duo, two gigs of ram.

    I have been looking to update to a SSD. 1) is it possible and 2) what would be the best suggestion for one?

    Also what is the max limit on ram that you can have. I have read that you can have 3 gigs but then that requires you to have a 1 gig and a 2 gig. Thanks for your help guys I appreciate all the advice and help that has been offered on this website.

    An SSD is possible. Look at SSD's such as the Crucial M4 64GB or Vertex 2/3. Those are lighting fast but not that expensive in the 64GB/60Gb storage options.

    The MacBook is a Late 2006 Core2Duo, meaning it will be a MacBook 2,1.
    The MacBook 2,1 supports 2x2GB RAM utilizing 3.3GB. That would be best for that machine.

    On a side note: MacBook 3,1 and upwards support 6GB, but 4GB DDR2 are more expensive. I'd say 4GB is sufficient in such machines.


    An Vertex 2/3 SSD + 4GB RAM and the machine will be flyin'

    I am interested in updating my hard drive. I was looking at pure SSD's but for the price of the higher storage ones its not worth it. I was wondering if this any other MacBook user have used this hard drive and if so any noticeable speed/performance upgrades?
