Hi, I am currently running Snow Leopard on the earliest model of Macbook:
Model Name: MacBook Model Identifier: MacBook1,1 Processor Name: Intel Core Duo Processor Speed: 2 GHz Number Of Processors: 1 Total Number Of Cores: 2 L2 Cache: 2 MB Memory: 1 GB Bus Speed: 667 MHz Boot ROM Version: MB11.0061.B03 SMC Version (system): 1.4f12 Serial Number (system): 4H6204KGU9E Hardware UUID: 00000000-0000-1000-8000-0019E338999C Sudden Motion Sensor: State: Enabled
I currently have 1g of ram (2x 512) and thinking of buying one 2g stick from my friend. i was wondering if using only one slot with a 2g stick will actually work for my super old and weak macbook? and if it does work, would switching from 2x 512mb to 1x 2gb have any noticeable difference?
thanks in advance.

One 2GB stick will work (your max ram is 2GB). Whether or not you will see a noticeable difference depends on what apps you are running. But, more Ram is always better. You need to be careful about any Ram stick you buy. Apple Ram specs are pretty stringent.
