If its an early 2006 model (Core Duo) then the extra Ram will be of no use

Is the 2 GB maximum RAM capacity for the MacBook Pro "Core Duo" a true limit? Would it support 4 GB of RAM if I installed dual 2 GB SO-DIMMs? @

If its a late model (Core 2 Duo) then you only need one 2 gig ram chip

How do you upgrade the RAM in the MacBook Pro? How much RAM of what type does it support? @

What do you have in you machine now? If the limit is 2GB, which it looks like it is, buy 2x1GB then will alway you to not only get them cheaper than a 1x2GB but you will also benefit from DDR giving you a little boost.
