Dec 2011, MacBook 2.4 replaces 1.83

In December 2011, I lost my favorite electronic companion to heat exhaustion.  Logic board, I expect, starts up, blank screen - gone, gone, gone... First of the new MacBooks, Aug, 2006 - MacBook 1.83 - 512x2 memory, wo/SuperDrive.  AppleCare replaced: two sets of charger/batteries; cases and a logic board. I went through a few HD's, the last & now current is a SATA 250GB (7200RPM) from Newegg.

The MacBook 2.4 looks good, clean - screen and body, a nice improvement - Mac OSX 10.6.8.

It seems the memory was bad in the 2.4.  It worked fine until I removed it and reinstalled.  Three beeps and no start up.  Memory does get old, and heats up - not a real problem.  OWC is a trusted source.  I replaced the memory with 1GBx2 OWC memory that was in my old MacBook 1.83.  I sent OWC a note, just to report it - as I plan to buy the (reasonable max of 4GB) from OWC, soon.

Apple MacBook White 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo 2GB Mem-160GB HD-SprDrive-Aiport Wireless $439.99 at OWC - $5 off for using Amazon to process the order which included free shipping - total being $434.99.
