Can this handle 8 gb memory?
hey i was wondering if you can upgrade the memory on this computer to 8gb? i kno it can handle 6 gb but if i update it to 8 gb (2x4gb) will my computer recognize it? i need sugessions before i buy it.
and btw will a 1tb harddrive work for this as well?
According to Mactracker the A1278 will handle 8 GB and has no limit on hard drive other than what will fit in the space provided. I am providing you with a link to a guide on memory capabilities for all Macs. Look yours up for confirmation.
Macs tend to be picky with the amount of RAM that you have installed. I'd just stick with the recommended max of 6Gb. A 1Tb hard drive will work, but the physical size of the hard drive needs to be 2.5" wide x 9.5mm tall. I couldn't find any hard drives at 1tb, the closest I found was a 750Gb - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/...
