I am hoping someone can clear this up for me.
I have an 07 macbook with 2.16ghz core 2 duo with 2gb ram.
Everything I've read says that 2gb ram is max, but some folks say you can get this model to use 3gb of ram, but it won't take four.
I have a quick question. If I upgrade to snow leopard, will I be able to use more ram? Or is this a factor of the hardware not being able to use it.
Also, I have also heard that running 1 2bg stick and one 1gb stick is actually slower than running 2 2gb sticks even though either way I will still only be able to use 3gb.
I do quite a bit of video editing that eats up nearly all my ram, so I need to upgrade either way. So should I get two 2gb stick and upgrade to snow leopard, or just one 2gb stick and keep my OS the same and use 3gb.
Thanks to all who can help.
