    I have a MBP 2.16 with 2GB of ram. I am looking to add more ram and looked on apple and it said the limit is 3GB but I looked on OWC and they said the limit is 4GB. Can anyone point me in the correct direction? Thanks in advance.

    Your MacBook Pro officially supports up to 2 GB of RAM, but unofficially the machine supports 2 x 2 GB; however, due to hardware limitations, Mac OS X will only be able to address ~3.25 GB.

    This is the case if you machine is Rev C MacBook Pro from Late 2006.

    Upgrading is necessary to maintain their system reliable but up gradation need configuration that must be full fill otherwise it make system problem.

    When was this model released? I'm not too good with these model names, but if I'm not mistaken, it was sometime in 2007 right?
