An important number from the RAM that might help with determining this is the pin count. Please add this. Also, check with the ID Your Mac page and go to the store page at the end. If iFixit sells the part for your machine, then it'll work!

The MB467 comes with 2 memory slots carring 1 GB 1066Mhz DDR 3 Ram module in each one (PC3-8500 DDR3).


"Apple officially supports a maximum of 4 GB of RAM. Originally, this model was only unofficially capable of stably supporting 6 GB of RAM, but as confirmed by site sponsor OWC, it is capable of supporting 8 GB of RAM if updated to Boot ROM Version MB51.007D.B03 and running MacOS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard" or higher."

Interesting that the stock RAM is 1066 MHz. Faster RAM will work, but it will most likely run at 1066 MHz.
