According to Mactracker the mid 2007 A1186 can use 3 GB of memory. (Apple says 2GB). The early 2008 A1186 can use 6 GB (Apple says 4 GB).

I'm also including a link to a chart listing memory for all Macs.

And here is the link to Mactracker

I have maxed my machine out at 6GB of RAM although Apple says it can only be maxed at 4. MacTrackers actual max stats are correct. +
