    I am looking to upgrade my notebook to whatever the max is for memory (3GB I think?). What do you all recommend, and what some good vendors?
    I don't know much about computers, but I am proficient enough that I can do this myself. I just don't know what this computer can take or can't take.
    This is my current hardware:

    Hardware Overview:

    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 (per processor): 4 MB
    Memory: 1 GB
    Bus Speed: 667 MHz
    Boot ROM Version: MB21.00A5.B07

    According to this website, your macbook only supports up to 2gb of ram, which should be good for most tasks.

    1GB (2x512MB) of 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM (PC2-5300); supports up to 2GB

    If you have one of the first models of MacBook, the limit is 2 GB of RAM. Those models have the Core Duo processors. The later Core 2 Duo models do support up to 3 GB of RAM.

    @Juice The core 2 duo that you have can support 3GB of RAM. This can be achieved by putting in a 1GB + 2GB RAM. There is an advantage to having a matched pair that will give you a little bit better performance than unmatched. With this in mind, if you were to put in 4GB (2 x 2GB) your amount of RAM will be 3+GB (something around 3.2 to 3.3) -GDF
