    Hi at all!
    I'm going to upgrade the ram of my Macbook white late 2007.
    Now I have 4GB (2x2GB) and I would like to have 6GB.
    I know that my Macbook can recognize 6GB only if I use a ram of 2GB and another of4GB.
    Do you suggest me a brand?
    I've seen a Crucial 4GB DDR2 SDRAM 667MHz. What do you think?

    The Crucial 4GB is fine for it, but prices seem a bit high for these older 4GB SO-DIMMS. Do you often run out of ram when using it?

    Usually I work with 100MB of free RAM.
    I use Lion and apps like Lightroom, photoshop and a lot of tabs in Safari.
    I have an SSD and the speed grown up. But I would like to upgrade my RAM (I don't want to buy a new mac because my macbook is in good condition).
    Do you suggest me any solution?

    Have you considered downgrading to Snow Leopard? If that is not an option for you then i would go for the 6gb upgrade.

    You could have a small speed decrease due the loss of Dual Channel when you have a 2+4 gb setup, but i doubt you would feel it.

    Thank you.
    And what about the brand for the 4g ram? What's cheapest and best brand?

    Cheapest and best are mutually exclusive.

    You can't go wrong with Crucial in my experience.

    Sorry, can't advise on that one. Not a brand I've ever heard of.
