View Full Version : Bit the Bullet on this 8GB DDR3 RAM - Good deal?

Nov 30, 2010, 10:00 AM
Just wondering if you guys know if I did the right thing? I did do my home work prior to biting the bullet:)

Type: 1066MHz DDR3 (PC3-8500) -SO-DIMM

Size: 8GB (each purchase is 8GB , 2 sticks of 4GB)

I have a June 2009 17" MacBook Pro.

Seller does list my model in his listing...


Any pointers appreciated.!

Thanks for this! Have been looking for a good 8GB upgrade deal that ships worldwide... :)

This price is exactly 3 times cheaper than what it costs here in South Africa for the same memory. Damn we get ripped off here...

Just curious, did you check that OWC doesn't ship to your country? They ship to Australia, and despite it being halfway around the world, shipping was only $4-5 using the cheapest option.

OWC is Other World Computing (http://www.macsales.com/), great place to buy mac upgrades. I checked, they ship to Finland for about $15, and their own brand 8GB RAM is about $120 with lifetime warranty. I wasn't interested in your RAM sorry :P Just wanted to let you know that just in case you wanted to upgrade something again in the near future :)
