I have a Macbook 5,1 (late '08 model) aluminum body. I'm running Mac OSX 10.6.8 with a 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and 2 GB 1067 MHz DDR3. I'd like to up my RAM to 8 GB and plan to order the RAM below, but I don't know if what I've selected will work... Can anyone tell me whether I'll be able to simply swap out the existing memory with this new memory? 5YWI/ref=dp_return_2?ie=UTF8&n=172282&s=electronics


Also, should I/could I upgrade my OS before/after installing new RAM?



MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
