Good evening ladies and gentlemen,

:)
I hope you guys can help me, I was all over the net by now, and the more I read from these forums and others the more confused I get.

I'm trying to maximize my ram as much as I can. Some sources say it's 6 GB max, some say only 4 GB (Apple Website for an example and many others)

I have an early 2008 MacBook (white color) with the following specs:

MacBook Intel Core 2 Duo/2.4 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, 160 GB internal drive, internal SuperDrive, no modem installed, Airport Extreme and Bluetooth installed, Intel GMA x3100, 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM.

Can some of you guys please confirm either 6 GB or 4 GB from personal experience?

I'm very frustrated, because it's nearly impossible to find an answer with this exact model. :(

I really appreciate it! :apple:

P.S. If it does work, did you run into any kind of issues with it at 6 GB ram?

For early 2008, maximum is 6GB, 2GB + 4GB, PC2 5300 667MHz.

Perfect! That's exactly what I bought.

Thank you sir :)


I believe for your model, it is 6 GB. OWC also mentions it being 6 GB

Perfect, I was going off that website when I bought the ram. I do appreciate all your help guys


i have a mid-2010 macbook, and i installed 1GB+4GB RAM, and it worked perfectly:) the maximum is 8GB


8 Gbs would be awesome, but 6 GB is MORE than great for me, since I only have 2 right now :)

Just to get this information straight.

Mid 2010's maximum RAM is 8GB, while both mine and the OP's are early 2008 which only takes PC2 5300 DDR2 RAM 667MHz. And the maximum is only up to 6GB.
