    Hi,

    I have a MacBook Pro that I bought back in June. It is Intel Core 2 Duo with 2 GB memory. Does it have one 2 GB memory stick -- or -- two 1 GB memory stick?

    I am looking to upgrade the memory to 4 GB of RAM and want to make sure I buy the correct configuration. I am looking at NewEgg for the memory (any suggestions?)

    Thanks a lot.

    Memory is generally faster when paired. It is also generally cheaper in smaller sized sticks. Therefore, manufacturers will almost always install multiple smaller sized sticks rather than leaving an empty slot.

    And specifically, yes the MBP with 2 meg comes with 2 x 1 meg sticks.

    Thanks a lot. So, I would then by 2 x 2GB sticks for my 4GB configuration, correct?

    ^^ Exactly. Don't worry about buying "Apple Approved RAM" or whatever, any old DDR2-667 SODIMMs will work just fine.

    That's gig, not meg. ;)
