    I have a Macbook Pro 2.2 GHz. It currently has 2GB of RAM. I want to upgrade the RAM to max it out. I have read that it can only use 3GB. Is that true?

    If so, then I could just buy 1 stick of 2GB and replace one of the 1GB sticks, correct?

    Thanks,

    Matt

    Go to  > About This Mac > More Info > Hardware > Hardware Overview: Model Identifier:
    What does that show? With that, you can identify your particular model.

    You can find specs on all Apple products with Mactracker.

    There is a MacBookPro3,1 with a 2.2Ghz that shows maximum RAM: 6.0 GB (Actual) 4.0 GB (Apple)

    So your Mac can use up to 6GB of RAM. You can either install a 2GB stick and a 4GB stick, or you can install 2 4GB sticks, but it will only use 6 of that 8GB.
