    MB134LL/A Two quick ram questions.
    I have an early 2008 mac book pro that I just acquired when my grandfather recently passed away. Two question. Can I install 6GB of ram and can I install 800mhz (PC2-6200) or am I stuck with 667mhz (PC2-5300)?

    If you go to

    RAM Memory Upgrade: Dell, Mac, Apple, HP, Compaq. USB drives, flash cards, SSD at Crucial.com

    You can enter in your make/model and get the exact memory type that you will need. You don't have to buy the memory from Crucial, but it will give you all the information you need to make the right purchase.

    This seems to be your computer:

    Apple MacBook Pro "Core 2 Duo" 2.5 15" (08) Specs (Early 2008 - MB134LL/A) @ EveryMac.com

    It says you can upgrade to 6 gig of ram (2 gig + 4 gig sticks).

    I think that you're supposed to stick with PC-5300...rather than PC-6200. Here's the kit you need from OWC:

    6.0GB Kit (2.0GB+4.0GB) PC2-5300 DDR2 667... (5300DDR2S6GP) at OWC

    Hope this helps,
