    Want to upgrade my wifey's computer with more memory and maybe an SSD. All she does is iTunes, browse, blog and chat. With Snow, seems things have slowed down and wanted to see if I can take her to 4GB but I am not sure if it is supported.

    Anyone have a 2,1 to 4GB or is 2GB max?

    Thanks in advance!

    You are able to install a 4GB kit (2 x 2GB) but your machine will only utilize 3GB (really ~3.3GB) of the RAM. There is a performance benefit of installing 2 x 2GB over 1 x 1GB + 1 x 2GB and it may be a less expensive purchase as well. -GDF
