+ Right machine, correct information. Some people say I want to argue about everything. I can't argue with that.


Yes, Mactracker gives the same results: 6 GB of PC2-5300 (667MHz) DDR2 SO-DIMM


Can you add 1 4GB module and 1 1Gb module?

This works IF his computer is a 2009/2010 unit. May not work otherwise. That's why we ask for the serial number so we can confirm which model the OP has.


Kuba, there's a reason we try to get the facts before answering a question. That's so we can give a correct answer, your's is wrong because you failed to get the facts.

Guys, please i got a small problem , here is the thing a friend of mine have a core i5 laptop from compaq , she started lately to travel a lot soo she want a netbook or a small laptop that can perform close to her laptop but light weight ! we couldn't find a cheap old netbook with that kind of performance and our only choice was to get this macbook 4.1 , soo our idea is to get that macbook and snap a 1TB Toshiba 5400rpm HDD and 4GB or 6GB of ram in it , she also want me to put a windows system on it , cause she doesn't know how to work on a mac os ! soo im wondering about RAM upgrade will it be an issue or any DDR2 brand of ram will work? also does anyone know if that laptop have a limit on capacity of the HDD ?
