You can take your machine to 8 GB of RAM. That would be two 4s. Your machine has two RAM slots. To see your configuration go under the Apple in the upper left hand corner to "about this Mac" > more info > Memory and see what you have now. It is probably 2 twos. You can replace one or both. So to get to 6 GB you need to replace one of the twos with a four. For exact RAM specs please give us the last three figures of your serial number
