- Asked by Victor L. November 2nd, 2011


There were multiple MacBook updates in 2009, so it depends which model you own. The early 2009 models can support 6GB of 800MHz DDR2 PC2-6400 SDRAM while the late 2009 model can handle 8GB of 1066MHz DDR3 PC3-8500 SDRAM.

Learn which MacBook model you have at the App Sliced MacBook memory section.

And whenever you upgrade memory, be sure to buy a brand name model (such as Crucial, Kingston, OWC, Samsung) rather than generic. It's also a good idea to avoid buying RAM upgrades from the Apple Store since their prices are marked up considerably. Learn more and find the best prices at App Sliced Memory.
