Hello all,

I have a 2010 13" 2.4 Core 2 Duo Mackbook with these specs:
MacBook (13-inch, Mid 2010)
2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
5 GB 1067 MHz DDR3 (one 1GB Stick & one 4GB Stick)
NVIDIA GeForce 320M 256 MB


***Your Mac contains 2 memory slots, each of which accepts
a 1067 MHz DDR3 memory module.***


I want to replace the 1 GB stick with this:

https://www.amazon.com/Crucial-Single-PC3L-12800-SODIMM-204-Pin/dp/B006YG8X9Y/ref=sr_1_3?s=pc&rps=1&ie=UTF8&qid=1480135174&sr=1-3&keywords=DDR3+PC3-8500+CL=7&refinements=p_85:2470955011,p_n_feature_four_browse-bin:2253866011,p_72:1248879011

If not, can you point me in the proper direction for another 4GB stick that will work?

Thanks to all for the help & Happy Holidays!

Hi,

Really need the macs identifier number, don't quote me but think you should be looking at the following.

1) Double Data Rate Small Outline Dual Inline Memory Module (DDR3) format
2) 30mm (1.18in inches)
3) 204 pins
4) 1GB /2GB or 4GB
5) PC3-8500 DDR3 S0-DIMM 1066 MHz Type Ram

5 GB 1067 MHz DDR3 (one 1GB Stick & one 4GB Stick)

Apple likewise states that "for best performance, fill both memory slots, and install an identical memory module in each slot."

I put 8GB 2x4GB sticks into my late 2010 white Macbook:)

Your MacBook identifier is 7,1 (that's a comma).

I heartily recommend you go to Other World Computing's website (macsales.com). I've done business with them for years and have been delighted with their products, tech support and even the rare occasions I've had to return an item (twice is 20 years!).

The MacBook 7,1, mid-2010, should be able to accommodate up to 16 GB of RAM (two x 8 GB).

I upgraded my MacBook with that plus a 1 TB SSD, and now this little rascal SCREAMS!!!
