    So I bought a RAM upgrade today and the guy went in the back for 1600Mhz RAM and brought out a 8GB set and I didn't look at it and just bought it. When I got back I was stoked to finally get it in and after I installed it I checked ATM and it said 8GB DDR3 1333. I was bummed but honestly don't want to pull it out and drive 15 minutes to return it. Will it be a major difference between the 1333 and the 1600? Thanks for any replies.

    I think it will make a difference and it would be worthwhile to return it for correct type.

    I'd take it back...I know you have to do it over, but it's worth it in order to get the better spec. RAM.

    I made up my mind to return it. I just hate borrowing my girlfriends car all the time. And honesty If I even went with the 1333 I could have got it for $30 cheaper down the street. I still can't believe Apple wanted $200 for me to walk out the door with a 8GB set. :eek:
