Hi, I want to upgrade my Macbook to 4GB of ram (it currently has 2GB). My Macbook is the 2.4Ghz Core 2 Duo non-unibody model. I purchased it in June/July of 2008.

Would this RAM work? Do Macbook RAM slots allow more 1GB for each one?

Newegg.com - CORSAIR 2GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Laptop Memory Model VS2GSDS667D2 - Laptop Memory

And I know Corsair is a reputable company, but is this decent quality ram?

Thanks in advance!

If they don't provide quality products why would they be a reputable company?

Haha maybe it has bad specs (long latency, perhaps there are better specs for the same price). I don't know. Just want to make sure.

I get all of my memory from Crucial.com and have never had a problem. Their memory selector tool will tell you exactly what you need.

Corsair is rebranded memory, much of which is junk.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Thank you. I used their scanner thing. It was slightly off (It said I had a black macbook) but I think everything else was the right specs. I trust that they are correct.
