SolidusSnake89 is on a distinguished road

First off I have a late 2007 macbook pro with a 2.4 ghz intel core 2 duo processor.

I currently have 2x2gb 667 mhz ddr2 sdram.

I read that my model can actually use 6gb 1x4&2 ram but will lose dual channel support.

source: A Guide to MacBook RAM Upgrades

1. Is this in fact true? Has anyone successfully done this?

2. That same article said that I can use 800 mhz ram instead of 667. Will that make a difference?

3. I can't easily find single sticks of ram. Can I plug in 8gb 2x4 and just have the computer use 6?

I would appreciate any help anyone can render in this area. Thanks!!!

Thanks so much! I found a great deal on on of the sites you mentioned. I also remember reading something that suggested that my ram sticks match in therms of brand and such. Is that really necessary?
