    Question Upgrading Memory macbook (generation....?)
    Hey everyone,

    I don't know what generation my macbook is and therefore I don't know how much memory i can put in. I would either upgrade to 2x1gb or 2x2gb depending on what it could support. All I need to know is what generation it is. Here is my hardware overview.

    Model Name: MacBook
    Model Identifier: MacBook3,1
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2 GHz
    Number Of Processors: 1
    Total Number Of Cores: 2
    L2 Cache: 4 MB
    Memory: 1 GB
    Bus Speed: 800 MHz
    Boot ROM Version: MB31.008E.B02
    SMC Version (system): 1.24f2
    Serial Number (system): W87471CWZ65
    Hardware UUID: 9E41ACCD-46FA-59C5-8757-89CCA6557FFF

    So any help identifying what generation this is would be greatly appreciated. (Also i bought this computer about 2 years ago if that helps)

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the Forum - this may help - Apple MacBook Specs (All MacBook Technical Specs) @ EveryMac.com but a quick look shows 4 models with 2GHz so u might have to do a bit of checking of specs, but it will tell u what ram u could use.

    ok thanks a lot. From that information I am fairly confident that my macbook is this one.

    So my mac supports up to 2x2gb ram, but is it really worth it to spend an extra $50 on 4 gb of ram than on just 2?

    Depends - if u are on Snow Leopard running a number of apps or doing video rendering then i would say yes - if u are on Leopard and doing emails and surfing then i would say go for 2GB total. Put in another 1 GB chip
