Assuming you are using MacBook2,1 with the 2.16 C2D, Apple has 2GB listed as a max but it has been reported that it can handle 3GB. While an OS can limit the amount of RAM you can use, the 3GB limit here is hardware related. Leopard, for instance, was more than able to handle 4GB.

While SL can handle much more RAM than it even conceivable right now, those RAM limits won't be reached until hardware catches up. For instance, this page states that, "64-bit computing shatters that barrier by enabling applications to address a theoretical 16 billion gigabytes of memory, or 16 exabytes." If you find a computer that can handle that much memory, you've discovered time travel.
