Damn, I need 1333Mhz and this is 1066Mhz.

Still hot though. . .

Have some heat. Jesus, what do computers do with all the RAM these days ... my first computer had 32mb of RAM that was only in 1996 ...
#6
Was tempted until I read the reviews on Amazon - while some people had no probs, 4 dudes said they had faulty modules. Not worth the risk IMHO.
#7

Agreed. Might just purchase it direct from Crucial for an extra 15 quid for peace of mind.

That must have cost a fortune back then. I remember paying £85 back in late 94/early 95 for a 4MB upgrade (took my 486 DX2-66 to a whopping 8MB) just so I could play Championship Manager.

Great deal, just ordered for mac book pro.

I remember paying around £80 for 4Mb RAM back in 95 to get up to 8Mb RAM to play Crusader No Remorse :D

NOTE: This RAM is not the optimal speed for new Macbook Pros. This is rated at 1066Mhz where as the minimal speed you should get for the new Macbook Pros is 1333Mhz. It may work, but why not spend the extra £10 and get RAM running at the correct speed for your expensive MBP.

You want 1333mhz, you don't need it as this one will work just fine but at 1060mhz speed!

Do you need much more than 4GB? I've never seen my desktop go much over 3GB with a game running and browsers etc. Though I haven't played any modern games really.

I use my lappy for gaming, cad and 3d design and rendering, 16gigs will hopefully make some improvements, not much though, but considering when I bought it 16 gig was a £400 optional extra, 90 quid seems laughable.

cold where is my comments

you're getting Grade-A brand name computer memory. Cheap computer memory while possibly being compatible - can cause system crashes, error codes in your computer and even damage your motherboard!
What a load of BS, there is NO such brand name I can see in any of the product pictures or mentioned in any of the reviews, yet alone a "grade-A" one, whatever that is supposed to mean. On the other hand it certainly is "cheap computer memory"... OOps shot themselves in the foot there!

For £7 more you get a reliable brand and faster speeds:

Added: I just noticed that you save 1p on the above by buying it through Kikatek instead of the default buying option.

Komputerbay memory is indeed reclassified (some may call it Grade A, Seconds) memory. They use chips from the major manufactures (Hynix, Micron, Samsung etc.) that for whatever reason did not meet specification. This may be something as simple exceeding the power specifications which would not be noticeable by the end user. The chips used will be tested but are often on the edge of the claimed specification rather than well within it that is normally required.
You may get a good set that has lots of tolerance and will work great, some may work but not be stable on some systems under load for example and adjusting voltage, frequency or timings may improve its stability but this is often not possible with laptops.

So in essence these modules can be a super bargain, but with the price you may find that you have to send them back before you get a good set. If your happy with that you may have to do it then they are a good buy.

Kompbay - sent wrong item took 6 weeks to sort out, and that was after involving Amazon themselves - not worth the hassle

Does this work with Macbook Pro 13 Early 2011 model?
