    I am looking to upgrade the RAM on my 15.4" 2.4 MacBook Pro I just got. But the book says I have to use PC3-8500 DDR3 1066 MHz 200-PIN. I am most worried about the number of pins because I can only find 204-PIN RAM and not the 200-PIN RAM. Will 204-PIN RAM work?

    This is what I was looking at. Will it work? http://eshop.macsales.com/item/Other World Computing/8566DDR3S4GP/

    Also Im not entirely sure what the whole unibody thing is. Ya Im a newb when it comes to that I guess. I just picked this thing up on Saturday so its the new MBP. So is it unibody or not?

    Yes that will work for you. You have a unibody which refers to the construction. The body is carved from a "brick" of aluminum so it is one solid piece.

    Cool thanks alot. I thought thats what unibody meant but I didnt wanna get something wrong and order the wrong RAM. That would suck.

    They need to address that issue somehow. If you do a search for DDR3 on Best Buy you get one set of RAM and they also claim its 200-Pin. I didn't think they made a 200-PIN that why I was confused.
