    With the information provided I can not give you a clear answer. I would need to know when the model was released. You can look up the information on this website.

    heres the main prob tho:

    MacBook - MacBook (Early 2008) - Technical Specifications - (only has early 2008) - got mine in NOV

    then Apple goes onto the Aluminum Notebooks MacBook (13-inch, Aluminum, Late 2008) - Technical Specifications

    Now, My Apple has the Intel Graphics Card, but is not EARLY its LATE 2008

    The website you provided suggests that all MAC BOOKS early / late 2008 take 4GB, However, in the link above (from apple - early 2008) it states that the max is 2GB,

    I really need to know what to do before buying 4GB of Ram.

    The old ones could do 3 GB not 2. I had mine running with 3 and no problems. Only the new ones with new firmware can do 4GB.

    My white MacBook with Model Identifier:
    MacBook3,1
    Intel Core 2 Duo, 2.2 GHz
    can have 4GB Ram (that is 2 x 2 GB, DDR2 667)

    MacBook model earlier than that can only use maximum 3GB Ram

    Your question cannot be answered without further clarification,... By maximum limit supported for memory for a MacBook, do you mean, hardware-wise or kernel-wise?

    If you meant hardware-wise it's 4GB... since October 2007, if I recall correctly, Macbooks had a max capacity of 4GB (in 2x2GB configuration). This means that the hardware can handle the 4GB of memory without problems

    BUT——

    —that does not mean you get access to all 4 gigabytes... Because the 32-bit kernel cannot address more than 3.2GB (might be wrong) Leopard, as an OS, probably cannot address all 4GB. You'll have to wait for Snow Leopard for that (Mac OS X v10.6 is a 64bit OS)

    (Sorry bout the mess, that's as simple as I can get on this matter)

    just an update 4GB works a charm, However, XP via BootCamp -> Only sees 3GB MAX

    XP 32-bit only supports up to 3 gigs. Actually 2.73 i think, which puts the rest of the ram into use trying to figure out what the extra ram needs to do. So unless you're 64-bit, you're only going to see 3 gigs or so max. It sucks, but that's windows for ya.
