    Hi guys,

    First post here. I was just wanted to check this RAM was compatible with my Mac before buying.

    It's the MacBook 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (13-inch White) MA700LL/A

    From what I've read it seems like it's better to have 3gb than it is 4 in this model, correct me if I'm wrong.

    I did a system scan on crucial and that's fine, except they don't sell 2gb sticks!

    Can someone tell me if this module will work ok? The only difference I can see the component configuration, the one on Crucial is 28Meg x 64 and the one on ebuyer is 256Meg x 64

    Help please?

    The eBuyer ram is fine - your MacBook can use PC6400 or PC5300 sodimms - PC6400 tend to be cheaper - although £19 each plus postage is not particularly cheap.

    4GB is better than 3GB because you are using matched ram which gives a small performance improvement and your MacBook will be able to use 3.3GB of the 4GB installed.
