Thought this is a decent price for 8GB of RAM! When upgrading on the Apple Store 4GB (2x2GB) would set you back £82!

DDR3 So-dimms so will fit the newest range of macbooks and macbook pros.

They have been this price for a few weeks now. Don't forget they're also compatible with any ddr3 laptop 204-pin slots. Heat added.

£56 on ebay if you don't mind ordering it from the USA.

sorry for a potentially stupid tech question, but would these also work with a macbook from 2008? i see they'll work with the latest ones so i thought id ask...

Would rather pay the £2 extra and get Corsair stuff.

Plus I have absolutely no faith in Amazon since they sent me a couple of DVD drives instead of HDDs.

Interesting to see how this has fallen though! Expected to rise again?

Almost certainly not. Unfortunately your laptop is more likely to be running DDR2 memory - and this is DDR3.

Personally I'd go for Kingston memory all the time. For £1.18 more you can get this from ebuyer

Wow great deal! Heat added

+ whatever the customs charges are, as well as the long wait.

Anyone got a MacBook (white unibody) 2010 with 8Gb in it?

Mine has 4Gb and was wondering if this is a worthwhile upgrade?

@tomboy, depends what you do with your Mac. If you run Activity Monitor and check System Memory you can see how much memory you are using and how much is free. I run virtual machines under VM Fusion and the move to 4gb to 8gb stopped intermittent hangs I was having (VMs love ram). If you're machine feels fine, you almost certainly don't need it and it won't make it any faster. Save your dosh for a SSD drive instead :-).

Make sure your Mac can actually handle 8GB before purchasing this. My MBP can only handle 6GB, and my iMac, only 4GB!

If you're unsure what your computer can take then most of the manufacturers have a guide on their websites. I use the Kingston one

Thankyou! Nice info there, I'm running at 2.16Gb free at the moment, but need to check when I have Aperature running full steam.

Still new to Macs and didn't know about that, so thank you kindly!

To be honest if you're running apps such as Aperture, Photoshop, Illustrator and you like running them all at the same time then maxing out on RAM is a good idea. Especially at the prices RAM's at today.

whats the tax man got to say about that?..honestly

already ordered these last week...they are unbranded. tests so far show its ok. just need to buy a good SSD card now and continue with my AOSP builds for android
also i checked out who komputerbay were. obviously can't post non amazon places unless they're well known on this site, but for the same price of a 1066 Mhz ram they sell the 1333MHz but that is "fullfilled by amazon" mind you they look all the same in the pics

I've got 6GB of RAM in my MacBook Pro and it really helps when running VMs, otherwise its pretty much the same as usual, I struggled to use all 4GB without VMs (even with Photoshop and other heavy weight apps open).

Your anecdotal isolated incident has turned me off amazon forever!!

Also, isn't this just DDR3 ram? Whats apple about it? Have they found some way to make propriety ram too?

I have a late 2008 unibody MacBook Pro. The first unibody model
It can only use a maximum of 4GB of ram (so I can't use this deal), but it does use the same 1067MHz DDR3 rate of this deal
so be careful. I use crucial.com/uk/ dropdown model selector to see whats compatible and required. They are a good supplier that I have used for years and only £10 more than this deal inc vat and shipping

Excuse my ignorance but as (unless I'm missing something) both Microsoft and Apple both now use Intel motherboards, isn't the memory just the same?
