Yeah, they lock it to 667MHz. The new iMac takes 800MHz SODIMMs though. I would imagine we will see the speed bumped to 800MHz in the next revision of the MB/MBP, but that is just a guess.

Ah, go me. I keep forgetting the new guys take 4GB. :(

Now I feel inadequate with my 3.3GB.

It'll most likely just down clock the memory to 667Mhz if you put 800 in there.

I would skip on the cheap PNY stuff. You tend to get what you pay for with memory. I'd go with Mushkin, Crucial, or OWC.

Yeah. The only Apples that run 6400 at the moment are the new iMac and the Mac Pro and Xserve. I would just take it to BB, tell them one of the modules seems to be dying and that you need 5300. If...

Thats kinda strange. That model of MBP (early 2008) should support all 4GB.

The fact that it is a different speed than your MBP runs shouldn't cause it to read an incorrect amount, since the...

1.) Whether you need to or not is entirely a personal choice. That said you will likely see a performance boost.

2.) Crucial is the retail arm of Micron, one of the larger chip manufacturers. I...

Oh yeah. There is DDR3 running at 2000+

Thing is if the mac he has only runs DDR2-667 or DDR2-533, putting DDR2-800 in it is a waste because it will just downclock it to the proper speed.

As far as brands, you should be ok mix and matching as long as the speeds are the same. I had a guy do it the other day with some Apple and some Mushkin. Other than ordering the wrong speed (5300...

The 512mb on the Powerbook was built into the logic board if I remember right.

If he is referring to clockspeed, the Macbook Pro supports...

As far as I know you cannot overclock the memory on a Mac. The BIOS equivalent is locked in such a way to prevent you from altering the timings and voltages. This is largely (I would imagine) for...

Most likely it will recognize up to 4GB (which AFAIK is the most you can get in a SODIMM kit). However, it will only utilize 3.3GB.

Your best bet is to get a 4GB (2x2GB) kit to upgrade. You will...

The question is how much does it utilize? When I put 4GB into my (late 2006) Macbook C2D, it saw all 4GB, but would only utilize 3.3GB.

That said, you will still see better performance with 4GB...
