Hi.

Concerning the listener with RAM problems with his MacBook, I recently upgraded mine from the original two 512 MByte boards to one 2Gbyte. This is a Macbook 2.1 bought in early 2008, and the RAM is standard PC5300 DDR2 SDRAM @ 667MHz (actually, pulled from a HP laptop). Worked fine, so I guess his *should* as well.

But a thought crossed my mind: even though his machine was bought in late 2008, could it have been an earlier model that stayed on the shelf for some time?

Cheers,
-Alan

Hi Alan—

It is certainly possible that it could be a pre-2008 machine, but doing a quick check at OWC, Macbooks all the way back to late 2006 can accept 4GB of RAM, though some may only be able to utilize 3GB.
