    I couldn't find a definite answer for this question while searching. So I'm hoping someone can help me.


    What RAM can I buy for my mac?

    These are the specifications:

    Model Name: MacBook
    Model Identifier: MacBook2,1
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2 GHz
    Number Of Processors: 1
    Total Number Of Cores: 2
    L2 Cache: 4 MB
    Memory: 1 GB
    Bus Speed: 667 MHz
    Boot ROM Version: MB21.00A5.B07
    SMC Version (system): 1.13f3
    Hardware UUID: 00000000-0000-1000-8000-0017F232B2C3
    Sudden Motion Sensor:
    State: Enabled

    It's a 2006 blackbook. What's the maximum I can get? I want it running way smoother than it is now, because it just isn't able to support my programs :eek:

    I appreciate the help everyone!

    You can put up to 3 GB of RAM in there. Actually, you can put 4GB, but it will only recognize 3.3GB of it so ...

    You need DDR2 PC5300 667MHz SODIMMs

    Is there a specific brand I should get? Or can I buy any?

    What would you recommend?

    Crucial is good. I wouldn't buy the absolute cheapest stuff you can find, but it shouldn't be that expensive anyway.

    I've seen prices. And I don't mind it being expensive when talking about RAM.

    What do you guys consider the best brand?
