comment Is there a technical reason not to upgrade a MacBook's RAM past its listed maximum?
@DanJ Thanks for the pointer to OWC. They seem not to endorse upgrades that are not also offered by Apple.

All is good, but I have trouble with the "computer should be fine." I would like to keep OS X running as long as I keep a linux box running. In practice linux will gladly last 6 months, and in one case, 3 years, without crashing, while I have trouble keeping OS X running perpetually. The crashes are certainly not frequent, but they do happen. Could my tendency to tinker be the culprit? Were the machines you upgraded rock-solid (as in they hardly ever crashed)?
