Thread: Upgrading Ram For My Macbook ???
01-09-2012, 07:58 AM #1Upgrading Ram For My Macbook ???
I'm running a Macbook 5.1 OS-X Leopard 10.5. I'm looking to upgrade from 2G Ram to 4G. Do i need a specific type of Ram for the Mac? or am i ok to purchase any make. Also is it safe to do the install myself?
Pretty new to Macs.

use crucial.com to know the type of ram you need, not necessary this make. ram install is the easiest to do, ifixit.com should help with pictures and it is a piece of cake, make sure the chips are fitted tight. And you are in business.

Since buying the Macbook I've not yet looked inside so not sure what brand of Ram is already in there. If upgrading with Crucial will there be a issue if both Ram moduals are of a different make ? or would i need to stick with one brand only.

It's probably Samsung. According to Mactracker you can put 8GB in a macbook5,1.
Crucial is excellent RAM, as is OWC.mike
