    I have the White macbook, my first and love it. Got it 6 months ago.

    It came with 1 meg ram, I added a 2 meg chip from newegg, now have 2.5 meg ram.

    Can I add another 2gig ram chip and make it a total of 4 megs of ram in this machine?

    You really need to get your terms straight...

    What is your processor speed?

    GB, not megs. Yes, two 2GB sticks will give you 4GB of RAM assuming your computer was bought new 6 months ago.

    I just found the box, and says it supports up to 4gb.

    I have a 2.1 Ghz intel core 2 duo white.

    I've got the same MacBook.

    It's known as an Early 2008 MacBook (Penryn).

    I've put 4Gb RAM in mine and it runs sweeeeeeeeeet!! I got the RAM from Crucial. 2 x 2Gb 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM.

    4MB of RAM...ah the memories...

    I think that's what our Performa 577 came with from the factory. My dad spent like $400 to upgrade it to a whopping 20MB.

    Yes, you will be able to upgrade your RAM. I got lucky, I got in on a special FRYS deal and upgraded to 4GB for 10 dollars :D

    Yes - but it will only recognize 3.3 GB's.

    A lot of people recommend crucial but I used OWC.
