    I have a 2.2 GHz SR MBP with the stock 2GB memory. I wanted to know if this is 2 x 1GB sticks in 2 slots, or 1 x 2GB stick in 1 slot. The reason I am asking this is I am interested in upping the total RAM to 4GB, but need to know whether I can just get 1 2GB stick to top it up, or I have to buy 2x 2GB sticks. Thanks.

    why don't you open it up and see?

    I honestly don't know - there may be a way to check in settings, but opening it up would definitely tell you.

    I have a 2.4 GHz, and it's 2 x 1GB ram sticks.

    You can find out for yourself in About This Mac. Click on more info. Then click on Memory.

    Sigh. Nominated for useful post of the week. :rolleyes:

    To the OP: Under The Apple menu: About this Mac: More Info takes your to System Profiler, then under the memory tab it will tell you how much is in each socket. The MacBook Pros always ship with 2 x 1 Gb stock, BTW, apple has never shipped a machine with a single 2 Gb.

    Edit: apparently double reeds are faster than brass... :)
