Hey everybody I'm getting a new Aluminium Macbook!

And I am most probably gonna upgrade the RAM to 4GB.

I know that it has to be 2x2GB 1066Mhz DDR3 RAM...

But I want to know the exact specs just in case:
- How many pins for the Aluminium Macbook (200-pin or 204-pin)
on the apple website http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1651 it says its 200-pin but I've heard everywhere that its 204
- Does the PC3-8500 matter or whatever?

- I need to know the how many pins (204 or 200)
- What PC3-8500 is and does it matter what I get.

This has all already been covered in the sticky thread on MB RAM upgrades.

It's 204 pins and any PC3-8500. CL doesn't matter.

That's what the sticky is there for. Lock please.
