What's The Maximum Memory For A 2008 MacBook?


How much RAM can I have to max out a 2008 MacBook?
- Asked by Viola H. October 24th, 2011


There were a couple MacBook updates in 2008 - two white MacBook models and one aluminum MacBook (the predecessor to the MacBook Pro 13 inch). The white MacBook models from that year use 667MHz DDR2 PC2-5300 SDRAM and support a maximum of 6GB (but you will have to put in 8GB for that to work). Same goes for the aluminum MacBook, except it requires 1066MHz DDR3 PC3-8500 SDRAM.

If you're not sure which MacBook model you have or you want more information, visit our MacBook memory section. We will help you determine which upgrade you need and show you who has the best prices for that time of RAM. We also recommend avoiding memory upgrades from Apple, it's much easier to use one of the brands listed at App Sliced Memory.
