    The title says it all.
    What's the difference?
    Is there a slight/moderate/huge difference in speed/battery life performance/etc?

    And is it worth it? I see a Kingston 8GB (2x 4GB) 1600MHz for $105.
    I have MBP 13" 2011




    Also, a different topic, instead of making a new one.
    What ram brand do you recommend for 1333MHz?
    And once I upgraded my laptop ram, can I use (2x 2GB) that came with my MBP2011" to put in my 2009 MacBook? Can it handle 1333MHz?

    Where you buy yours?
    There's not a lot of choices for 1600MHz laptop.

    The numbers may look [slightly] better on paper (or in Geekbench) but, honestly, you won't notice the difference 90+% of the time.

    If you benchmark for a living, it's worth it.

    If you use your computer, it's not. There's no difference going to even the 1866, or 2100 if you're just an average user. Your WEI scores go up, but does that really mean that much to you?

    8 GB 1333 RAM can be had for ~ <$55.

    Is there even any 2100 for laptops?
