I currently have a white plastic macbook which I purchased in May. It is the most recent version, excluding the new aluminium. It has 2.1 ghz and is the base model, but I upgraded the RAM to two gigs. I have now been doing more video and media editing and was wondering if I should do a self replacement to 4 gigs considering my machine is getting slower.

4.0GB Kit (2.0GB+2.0GB) PC2-5300 DDR2 667... (53IM2DDR4GBK) at OWC

I have been eye-balling these and have been close to clicking the "add to basket button" several times. can someone verify that it is compatible with my mac, and if I should even upgrade at all? Thanks a ton

I direct you here. Yes they are compliant with your MB, so is the one that you listed.

They cost less and are faster. Happy upgrading. ^-^

The Kingston are def faster than the OWC.

And here is some Corsair equivalent to the Kingston and cheaper, but only after rebate.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

Seems to be geting bad reviews from some Mac owners though. >_>"

"You have six days (that's right, 6 days) from the date of purchase to get the rebate postmarked or you don't qualify." This also puts me off.

I upgraded my macbook to 4gb of ram and it was a great decision. It's an easy upgrade and it makes the computer a lot faster. You might need to look into getting a small phillips screwdriver if you don't already have one though.
