A1181 MacBook ID help, Not sure which one I have? Please Help?


Im ready to up grade my ram and HD on my A1181 Macbook with a 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo. When using Apple's online service assistant and putting in my Serial Number, It does not show any specifics of year and whether it is a Santa Rosa, Penryn, etc etc. Although It appears from cross referencing your product Id numbers that the ram and HD's ifixit sells can work on a number of A1181 Macbooks, I would like to know what my specific mac is so i can ensure Im buying the correct product. As said before my MacBook is an A1181, 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 gig memory, and SN is W8903LVV4R1. Thanks in Advance,

Plenty of more details about it right here

This from the manual about your memory:" This computer comes with a minimum of 2 GB of 667 GHz Double Data Rate 2 (DDR2)Synchronous Dynamic Random-Access Memory (SDRAM) installed. It has two slots that can accept SDRAM Small Outline Dual Inline Memory Modules (SO-DIMMs). The slots are side-by-side on the logic board behind the RAM door. For best performance, memory should be installed as pairs with an equal memory card in each slot. The maximum amount of memory for this computer is 4 GB, with 2 GB DIMM installed in each slot.

Memory cards must meet these requirements:
