Loc: Avoiding Direct Sunlight
I currently have 2 512mb sticks in my mbp core duo, and i'm looking to upgrade to 1.5 or 2gb. My dad's old Toshiba laptop was upgraded with (i think) a 1gb stick, so would I be able to use that in my mbp? and does the ram have to be matched pairs or can I use a 1gb and a 512mb?
The Core based Intel Macs prefer matched pairs, but they will run mismatched ones. Matched pairs should be faster though. As for using your toshiba RAM, if its the right spec, it will work fine. If its older than a Core Duo/solo, the its probably wrong. Needs to be 667MHz, PC2-5300 DDR2 SO-DIMMS.
I'm running my 1.83 MacBook Core Duo with 1.5GB of RAM, I would like to get round to upgrading it to 2GB and maxing the spec out, but I'm not sure its worth it or not for the things I do. But it does run fine and has done for about 10 months since I bought it.
