I have a 2008 2GB 15" mac book pro & would like to increase the speed.
my question is.. would the increase be very noticeable & is it poss to move up to 8GB, not sure if i have read somewhere that apple only recommend increase to 4GB ??.
any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I personally have 4gb and its just fine. Even though I just got my mac I've had a lot of PC's and 4 gb has always been enough unless your doing extreme stuff. It probably would speed your machine up a bit but idk if its worth the extra $

But since you do only have 2 gig of ram...you may benefit from a ram upgrade (but no guarantee that it will speed things up).
As far as your other ram question. You didn't say "exactly" what model MBP you have...but if I'm in the right "ballpark"...the max. ram you can install is 6gig. So you could go for either a 4gig or 6gig upgrade total.
