    Does anyone know if the new Macbooks that are supposed to be released will take the same RAM as the current model?

    If they are Montevina based, they will probably take DDR2-800 (PC2-6400) RAM.

    Alright, I wasn't sure. I guess I'll wait and see, do you know if the websites that sell RAM will stock up quickly?

    Well, IF it is DDR2-800 then these are already in stock for the 2008 iMac models. If it is DDR3 or DDR2-1066, then there would have to be some ramp-up time to allow vendors to test and certify their modules.

    Montevina, aka "Centrino 2" very well may feature DDR3 RAM. While it isn't currently an upgrade over DDR2 RAM, in the coming years it will be. I'd expect an upgrade to DDR2 (800Mhz) at the very least.


    Note: I have NOT followed Montevina - it is likely this information has been revealed already - it's purely my speculation.
