I would like to add more RAM to my older MacBook Pro, 17-inch, early 2008 model. My current RAM is 4 GB, but I understand these systems will work fine with 6 GB. Thus I want to replace one of the 2 (two) 2 GB DIMMs that I have currently with a 4 GB DIMM to make a total of 6 GB.
Could anyone tell me the precise specs of the 4 GB DDR2 RAM module that I need?
My system specs are:
Introduced February 2008
Discontinued October 2008
Model Identifier MacBookPro4,1
Model Number A1261
Processor 2.5 GHz
Number of Cores 2
System Bus 800 MHz
Memory DDR2 SDRAM, 667 MHz
Here is the URL from my crucial memory scanner scan:
Thanks much in advance...

Thank you for contacting us today. We have not tested the 4GB module with your system so we can't guarantee it will work in your system. However, you may definitely try the 4GB RAM and see if it works in your system and return it with the 45 day period for full money back if you purchase directly with us.
The 4GB RAM module that matches the specs of your system can be found here:
Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

Thank you for contacting us today. The pricing for memory is completely based on supply and demand. 4GB modules where not used not compatible with that many DDR2 systems and so the supply is rather low (and they are more scarce). DDR4 memory is the newest memory we manufacturer and we will have more of a supply of this RAM.
