MacBook Unibody up to 4Gb of ram

So I got my new computer, a Mac, yes I step in, first because i’m curious and second because I need a Mac environment to develop some Iphone applications and I was tired to fight to install Snow Leopard on regular computer. I gave my Asus Eeepc 1000HE to my mum so I needed to buy a new computer.

I choose a MacBook Unibody, the new one with 2gb of ram, as soon as I got it I installed Windows 7 with bootcamp on it and I wanted to make some new VM to work but 2gb memory was clearly not enought.

So I bought 2x2gb OCZ (OCZ SO-DIMM DDR3 2 x 2 Go PC8500) and open my MacBook to change that :

There are 8 screws to open this computer :

The I add to unclip the back, and it came by itself, now you can see the hard drive and memory module above
