    Unhappy early white macbook ram problem
    hey guys today i bought my second hand white macbook but it only has 512mb ram, and the operating system is tiger.

    i want to get leopard but my ram isnt big enough to support it, will 4gb ram fit in this notebook? and then would leopard work??

    thanks

    Well,
    If you go to crucial.com and download the program or know what mac you have on the list it will tell you what your maximum allowed ram is. Then you can order it there or find it cheaper in other areas like newegg.com or maybe some close store. Hopefully that was exlained well enough and it makes sense? If not I can try to explain it more clearly.

    That machine with 2GB of RAM will run leopard just fine. I have the 2 ghz model with 2 GB. No problems. Should be even better with Snow Leopard if Apple delivers the promised speed improvements.
