Macbook White Memory

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi, I am going to buy a 2.4ghz white macbook(mainly because I need the fw) and am planning to upgrade the memory to 4gb when i get it. As the bus speed is 800mhz but apple only uses 667mhz memory as standard, will I get any performance increase by using 800mhz ram?
Thanks

Nope, itll clock down to 667, even if you drop 800 in there. Just go with pretty much any decent 2x2gb 667 kit (~$40-50 these days).

Thanks, Thought as much but always good to check, unfortunately I live in England so can't quite get 4gb kits that cheap but there a lot cheaper than the last time I bought a RAM upgrade
