I was wondering if I can upgrade from 2 gigs of RAM to 8 gigs with no trouble. I doubt this, but just wondering.

Many thanks in advance!

I believe 3.3gb is the max. You can install 4gb, but only 3.3 is recognized.

From here:
*Apple officially supports 2 GB of RAM, but third-parties have been "unofficially" able to upgrade it to 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM (it can hold 4 GB but cannot fully utilize the memory beyond 3 GB due to the same limitation that impacts the "Late 2006" MacBook Pro line).
You can find specs on all Apple products, including maximum RAM:
  • By visiting EveryMac.com: Actual Maximum RAM
  • By using Mactracker
  • By entering your serial number here to find specs for your model. (Be aware that some models can use more RAM than Apple shows. Check EveryMac or MacTracker to verify.)
