    Upgrade RAM
    I have a 2.16 GHz Intel Core Duo macbook pro. I wanted to put 4 gigs of ram into it but it didn't work. I went to see the geek squad and they said im only allowed to put in two gigs. Is there anyway to put more in it or am i out of luck? Thanks

    In this case the Best Buy Geek Squad is correct. Your model MBP is a Core Duo which can only take 2 GB of memory. If it were a later model, Core 2 Duo, then it could accept 4 GB but only use 3 GB of the total 4 GB.

    Regards.
