Go to the Crucial website, download and run the scanner to see what is available for your MacBook.

OWC, Other World Computing says this MacBook will take 4GB upgrade. I just ordered the set. I'll report on the results next week.

You can put two 2gb RAM sticks in your model 2,1 but it can only use 3,3gb. This is a hardware limitation and cannot be changed.
OWC tests have found that there is a slight speed increase with having two 2gb sticks in rather than one 1gb and one 2gb. Your model is in the gray lines at the bottom of the graph. http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/Memory_Benchmark/Apple_MacBook/

No Troubles with the 4 gig ram upgrade. Did hard drive as well. Noticeable speed increase but it's still a 6 year old machine. Read instructions. This was really easily done. Crucial site doesn't list 4 gig option. OWC has it.
