    Hey guys need your help. I have a macbook and I just loaded 10.5. I feel like my machine is running a little slow and I want to upgrade memory. Any thoughts on what I need? I dont have a clue. I would like to jump to 3 gb but dont know if I can. Thanks!

    I thought the max your 2 ghz MacBook could support is 2 gigabytes RAM. I think you're maxed out.

    Yeah, Core Duo MBP's can only take up to 2Gb of RAM.

    It's only running 1GB right now, so yeah, upgrade to 2. 3 is for the models that came out after wards, and 4 is for the latest models only. 2 should be fine. Search the forum, there are plenty of threads on what RAM to buy.

    Sorry, I see your image shows 1 mb RAM, not two.

    I recommend you get good, reliable RAM based on company reputation, not on price. Most likely you have two 512 mb SODIMMS in there, you'll need to get two 1 mb SODIMMs and pitch the 512's. Look at Crucial.com for a selector to find the right RAM for your model. OWC tends to be a little cheaper, but Crucial is very reliable. I've built many PC's over the years, lots of Crucial RAM with never a problem.
