    According to this at Crucial.com, you can only use 4GB.

    Should I go for this adventure?
    Would 2 more GB make a significant improvement?

    Under Activity Monitor do you notice a high rate of "Page Outs"? (Particularly during high-multitasking scenario)

    If Page Outs is always 0, I don't believe excess RAM will provide a benefit at all to your normal usage.

    More memory is always better. There is a 6GB kit from OWC.

    I don't know how yours, but my 4,1 cannot display other RAM that DDR2 667 MHz.
