    Specs:
    17" Core Duo Macbook Pro
    1 x 1 Gig or 2 x 512 MB RAM?
    I have a MBP Core Duo with a gig RAM and would like to upgrade to 2. How can I tell if it has 1 x 1 Gig stick or 2 x 512 MB sticks?

    G'day Doc!

    Go to the Blue Apple Icon (in Finder press Ctrl+F2) and scroll to About This Mac. Then in the window that appears, click on More Info... Then a new window opens ... actually it's the System Profiler. Scroll down the left pane until you see Memory and click on it. In the right section look at the top window and it will describe your insalled RAM.

    This is mine for comparison:

    BANK 0/DIMM0 ... Size 1 GB - Type ...DDR2 SDRAMM
    BANK 1/DIMM1 ... Size 1 GB - Type ...DDR2 SDRAMM
    I have 2 X 1GB RAM installed.

    Your post show what's installed in BANK 1, I presume there's no BANK 0?

    If not then you have 1 X 1GB RAM installed, Doc ....
