Open your Activity Monitor, and check your System Memory -- if you're starting to see "Page Outs" greater than 20% of your "Page Ins" during normal use, you should consider this ultra-cheap remedy! For those folks who want the ultimate in performance and consider this price to be "pocket change", if you're seeing *any* Page Outs, go for it!
To make sure this is the right memory for your Mac, open your System Profiler and look at your existing "Memory" entry to make sure that your system will use the 667MHz DDR2 RAM. Paying extra money for RAM that's spec'd faster than your system can take advantage of may not be the best use of your money!
The installation is a breeze on a MacBook like ours. Power down, remove the battery, remove 2 (really small!) screws and the shield they hold in place, pop your old memory out using the two levers, then reverse the process with your new memory. Power on, and check it out! Get back into Activity Monitor to see your RAM usage, or check with System Profiler to make sure it's all there.
You should be careful handling the RAM -- don't touch the metal contacts, only pick it up by the edges, and always make sure your other hand is in contact with the metal in your MacBook when handling these SoDIMMs to prevent any static jolts to the chips.
Pop out, plug in, and rock on!
13 inch, white Macbook
Mac OS X Tiger (10.4)
1 GB RAM memory
Resource intensive apps:
- Parallels Desktop with Windows Vista OS
- Adobe Photoshop and InDesign CS 4
- The GIMP (open-source)
- Scribus (open-source)
- Citrix Remote Client
I bought the 4 GB Kigston RAM for my 13 inch white macbook because I was tired of running a sluggish Parallels set-up with Vista that would freeze both systems. Also, my macbook was extremely slow when running Photoshop and InDesign CS4. Running one of these three applications was asking for a total system freeze.
Parallels would take about 5-7 minutes to load and would not restart properly if paused. Photoshop was a disaster as the application would become unresponsive when loading InDesign as well.
I decided to upgrade my laptop's RAM by purchasing the Kingston product. The installation was very simple. All you need is a screwdriver small enough to remove the metallic strip protecting the RAM compartments. Once I replaced my original RAM with these 2x2GB thunder horses and put everything back in its place, I immediately started my macbook.
The results were immediate. Loading Mac OS X is fast enough but with the new RAM it's twice as fast. Running Parallels with Vista now takes 2 minutes and there are no problems when pausing the application and restarting it later. Photoshop and InDesign are both running at the same time and there is no lag at all. I can even run all three apps and the system still works very effectively.
Overall, I am extremely satisfied with the results. The Kingston 4GB kit is affordable and user-friendly.Read more ›
But do note, this RAM is for the mid-2007 iMacs and MacBooks. The latest generation, the ones released in 2008 with Intel Core 2 Duo processors can still use it, but will do better with a slightly faster RAM. This is PC5300 RAM and is 667MHz. What you actually want for the latest generation of Macs is MC6400 RAM running at 800MHz. It's not going to be a night and day difference, but it's about the same price and you may as well get the right stuff.
To find the stuff you should get, search for this here at Amazon: KTA-MB800K2/4G. That is the Kingston part number and will turn up the one you want.
Was previous running 10.6.2 with 1 GB of RAM. Also ran Windows XP (SP3) via Bootcamp.
Installing the RAM took no time as it is easy to upgrade the MacBook (although you will need to remove the battery and 3 screws).
Performance showed a drastic improvement. Including app launching, boot time, running multiple apps and files with no slow downs.
Now running 10.6.3 with no trouble at all. Everything is very fast. Got the 4GB module and the MacBook is maxed out.
Didn't get a chance to run full RAM test, but I didn't get any kernel panics.
This RAM does not work with ANY OF THE UNIBODY Macs. Remember this runs at 667MHz. The newer Mac's RAM run at over 1000 Mhz. Just letting you guys know.
P.S. Also Kingston has very reliable warranty policy. So if anything goes wrong, you can always get free replacement from them (assuming if you send them your broken RAM).
