    Ram Upgrade
    Okay so I purchased my macbook around 2007 with 2gb of ram, and I was wondering what I had to do to get my ram up to 4 gigs. Obviously buy more, but what kind? and how much room does my laptop have to put more ram into it? I'm guessing I would need 2 sticks of 2gigs of ram. What kind am I looking for? Screen shot of about my mac is below.

    Specs:
    2011 13" MBP 2.3ghz, 8gig ram, OS 10.8.5
    Go to:

    OWC

    ...and get a 4 gig ram upgrade kit.

    Can my laptop handle 4 gigs? I guess i'm just looking for a data sheet or if someone could tell me the maximum possible that I could have? Or point me in the right direction.

    Your computer can be upgraded to 4 gig of ram...but it can only address 3 gig of the ram.

    Of course your next question is why...and here is the answer:

    Why are the MacBook Pro "Core 2 Duo" models limited to 3 GB of memory? If I install dual 2 GB modules, why won't I be able to use 4 GB of RAM? @ EveryMac.com

    HTH,
