MacBook 2.16GHz and 4GB Crucial Memory.

hi.
i want to upgrade my MacBook  (MB063B/A)  to 4GB.
this is spec of my machine:

Model Name:         MacBook
Model Identifier:     MacBook2,1
Processor Name:   Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed:  2.16GHz
L2 Cache:              4 MB
Memory:                 1GB
Buss Speed:           667MHz

Chipset Model:      GMA 950

does anyone on this  forum done that by using: 4GB kit (2GBx2), 200-pin SODIMM, DDR2 PC2-5300 memory module (CT2KIT25664AC667) ?   what's yours experience?

and next question is: why Crucial is not saying officially that some of the computers can recognize 4GB and utilize 3GB like they did?

Re: MacBook 2.16GHz and 4GB Crucial Memory.

We go by the manufacturer's official specifications of a system when we recommend memory upgrades. When we deviate from them it is only because we have found, through thorough testing in our performance testing lab, that the specifications may have been too conservative. Since we have not consistently been able to prove that all new MacBooks can recognize 4GB, we don't recommend it to our customers.
