I believe if you put 4gb in t

I believe if you put 4gb in there, it will only see 3, so yah you're wasting money if you put in 4. I have the 2.16GHz model and it already has a 1gb stick in it, so I was going to buy one of these 2gb sticks and just having it in there along with the 1gb to make 3.

RAM for 2.33G MBP 17

I also have a MBP which has the 3G ram limit. I was wondering if anyone has upgraded from 2 to 3 and what were the performance results? The same for 2 to 4. It was suggested to me there might improvement in some places and loss in others on the first scenario due to the mis-matched ram causing the system to not be able to use interleaving. In the other, what are the possible and/or real results (other than spending money on something you can't fully use) with a matched pair of 2s.

Thanks.

Well I took mine from 1Gb to

Well I took mine from 1Gb to 3Gb and I guess it was worth it. Its nice to be able to run Dashboard all the time without it slowing things down. I'm really not a huge RAM advocate. I think its nice, but it doesn't work the magic some people seem to believe it does. At least not for what I do. That said, RAM for these things is cheap enough, if you have a few spare bucks, why not?
