These two 4GB SO-DIMM sticks cost $1200 from Apple directly. Spoil yourself and don't feel guilty about buying them here for much less -- especially if you use Parallels Desktop, or VMWare. Kingston will back you up, Amazon will also.
Installing the 8 GB RAM was a 10 minute task. It took some time to dig up the right precision screwdriver bit. First shutdown the Macbook then remove the 8 screws to expose the RAM. Discharge static electricity and then remove the existing RAM ( follow instructions given in the 'Everything MAC' manual if needed) . Plug in the new RAM and fix back the screws. Boot back up..Go to MAC>About this Mac, to see the 8 GB in action,..
The Macbook is much faster now. All apps , from Google Chrome to XCode run quite smoothly.
I have 13-inch, Aluminum, Late 2008, Processor 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, Graphics NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB, Software Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2 (11C74), Model Identifier: MacBook5,1, Boot ROM Version: MB51.007D.B03 --- From what I've read, this last piece of info is super important or the computer won't take all 8GB of RAM. Something about a special secret firmware update...
I include all that because as I was searching for RAM for my molassassized Macbook, it was super confusing to me to know which was the "right" RAM for my computer and I would have hated to mess that up. Hardly any reviews had this, so here, dear shopper, is the info you need. Look in the System Profiler and make sure you have Model Macbook 5,1 and Boot ROM Version: MB51.007D.B03 -- not that other macbooks and the like can't use this RAM, but I'm typing on one that can and does. So I hope that helps.
Apple sells their RAM for $200 for 4GB. I'm sure it's like the Prada of RAM or something, but I just need a larger canvas bag -- nothing fancy, just MORE!! So I went searching and found that the Kingston RAM works awesome for around $50 and for TWICE the RAM. The installation was easy. Almost so easy it didn't need any instructions (but I searched Apple's support page for how to install RAM in macbook and followed those instructions).
10 min later (most of it oooooing and aaaahhing over all the pretty circuit boards) I rebooted with FOUR TIMES the RAM. While the beachball of death still lives, it don't have to live with it as much.
My RAMaholic Lion running macbook is finally satiated.
You may be suspicious about my report and I don't blame you. I am surprised at this behavior myself since I have been installing my own RAM in PCs for 2 decades and I cannot think of a single instance where the new RAM was bad; until this experience, that is.
