I have a Macbook Late 2006 model; Specs)

Will any brand/kind of 2x2GB DDR2 PC2-5300 SO-DIMM 200pin be compatible with this model?

(Like this RAM for example.)

Are there other considerations I need to be aware of? I have read that upgrading to 4GB of RAM will only get me 3GB. That's fine.

The link you provided suggests that it will only handle 2GB of RAM max. Are you sure it can handle 4GB? "1GB (2x512MB) of 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM (PC2-5300); supports up to 2GB" –  skub Jun 27 '12 at 14:35
    
I read in a forum somewhere that it can go higher, it's just not officially supported by Apple. –  Jonas Arcangel Jun 29 '12 at 3:38

The maximum RAM (memory) your system will support is 2GB of DDR2 SDRAM (PC2-5300). Yes; any manufacturer's RAM (memory) will work (assuming its the right type, the product on the link, is).

You will only be able to use 2 of the 4 GB being sold on that link. (as skub said, your system only supports 2 GB.

Where did you read your system can support 3 GB of RAM (memory)?
