Hi folks,

Just a quick question for anyone out there who knows. I have a macbook pro 2.33 / 17inch (march / april 2007 model) and currently have 2gb of ram installed. I'm looking to upgrade the amount but i'm not sure whether mine supports 3gb or 4gb. I seem to remember 3gb sticking in my mind from when I bought it but if anyone could help me out it would be most appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.

Cheers

Kieran

That model will recognize that 4 GB are installed, but it can only use 3 GB.

You can put 4 GB in the machine, what I did in mine (supposedly it will maintain dual channel mode that way).

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
