    Question Installing additional ram on macbook
    Hi everybody.
    I've a MacBook with 2 gig of ram and now I want to upgrade them to 4 gig.
    so I should replace each of them and take the new one.
    the original ram currently is installed has 1066 FSB.
    can I replace them with new one that has 1333 Mhz FSB?
    is there any problem?
    tank you very very much.

    I would recommend sticking with memory modules that are specifically designed for your machine. Even if modules that are rated for a higher bus speed work, there is no benefit from using them as the machine will only use the bus speed it is designed for (i.e. it will scale down).
    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!

    Most decent companies that sell memory will point you to the exact modules you need.

    I recommend:

    RAM Memory Upgrade: Dell, Mac, Apple, HP, Compaq. USB drives, SSD at Crucial.com

    ...or...

    Performance Upgrades; FireWire USB SATA Storage; Memory, more at OWC

    Don't buy cheap, generic memory. It's not worth the hassles associated with it.
