They doing a deal for the same but for the i5 15"?
It's the same RAM for all the Macbook Pro i5 line I think
Yepp this kit will work for any macbook / imac from the last couple of years, if you're not sure just hit the apple logo top left, then about this mac, if you can see 'DDR3' then this will work.
nice deal
7% quidco on this too!

Ahh nice one, ive updated for the Quidcotastyness
Yep, ordered yesterday for my 13" Macbook Pro coming later this week!

May have not been this particular RAM, but it was the right one and a good price. HEAT

Was looking for an 8GB kit last weekend for my 2010 MBP 13" to run multiple VMs....

I think you cannot get a better deal for MBP RAM at the moment...definitely a HOT deal.

A week ago the price was £44.39 but since few days back it is down to £38.39 (I am referring to part number CT1226797 which is for 2010-MBP 13 2.4GHz)...so looks like all Crucial MBP 8GB kits are around this price now.

I have a 2010 Core i7 15" - Would this be fit for mine?

Edit: Ran the Crucial system scan, chose the same RAM for the same price apart from a different part number!

This also fits an 09 MacBook pro afaik
What is the difference between PC3-8500/DDR3-1066 and PC3-10600/DDR3-1333? Is it speed? If so, would the latter be better?

I have an early 2011 MacBook Pro.

Yes it would, dependant on if your system can handle 1333mhz, of which only the newer MBPro's and iMac's can. 2010 MBPros and iMacs run at 1066.

By all means, you can install the faster RAM, you just wont get the benefits of the extra 100s of MHZ
All MBP and iMac/Mac Mini from 09/10 use the same memory.
What about 2011 MacBook Air i7?
great deal for good quality ram
This is "good quality" ram so should in theory be worth the extra few quid a module, right? Yeah...
Thanks, ordered.
Could anyone pls tell me for certain whether these work for the Mac Mini 2011 - I think so since these are 204 pin SODIMMs, unbuffered, non ECC and you can get them as PCS 10600 DDR3 but just arent sure.
Thanks for this. Been looking to upgrade the memory on my MBP to be able to run Logic/Aperture/Photoshop without issues. At this price, it would be rude to say no.

Thanks for the great spot (even if it did result in me spending money - D'oh!).

Thanks for this. Editing 1080p video from my Canon 550D in Final Cut Pro X will definitely run smoother
I've been looking at DDR3 PC3-8500 for my Dell laptop, so wonder if there would be any benefit to getting this deal as opposed to 2 sticks of 4GB Kingston ValueRAM from cclonline for under £34? Is the idea that this is suitable for Macs?
Good deal. Have some heat.
great deal just ordered some....thanks

Ebay the 2 chips you have removed from your MDP, you may be surprised what you get for them

Ahh that awesome that others have been able to grab the RAM for the upgrade.

Who knows, maybe Firefox will only attempt to eat 85% of resources now ;-)

Ohhh i love this spaghetteh.

Good deal but leave it out with the lolcats speak, yeah? kthxbai.
What size Torx screwdriver do I need to get the bottom off a MacBook Pro 15"?

Cold, you can get a 4GB Dane-Elec stick for £12.99 over at 7dayshop. 8GB for £26! I know 7dayshop have longish delivery times, but it is £12 cheaper.

P.S. Dane-Elec is a reliable brand, don't worry about that.
ordered for my MBP 2010, have some heat
ive been looking around is this deal really that hot?
2 x 4GB for £38
that kind of seems to be standard....or am i missing something?
ordered, received and installed...all in less than 36hours! more than happy
Have 2011 early 15 Mbp, don't do much editing or multiple app
Activity. Would I see much difference in speed (have used mac air and Mbp seemed sluggish in comparison so would like that!)
