    hey!

    I bought a white macbook 2.1GHz about 3 months ago, and after that time, i really need to upgrade my memory!

    I know that i can upgrade to 4Gb of memory, but i dont know if it will actually slow down my macbook, or if it will make it a little faster?

    I also went into a store the other day to see the prices, and i looked at the models...etc too. Now, can i put normal PC(laptop) memory on my macbook??? Basically, non-SODIMM memory.

    I want to buy 2x2GB of kingston memory, but it is not SODIMM....

    Thanks if anyone can help me!!

    And it will make it faster.
    The RAM has to be specific, it has to be for macbook, and not anything else

    Do you know what type of RAM is for entry-level Macbooks?
