    I'm planning to buy some more ram for my computer, and am curious about the RAM types.
    I've found a good deal here: http://bit.ly/1du9cmB
    But I want to know if this is the same type of RAM that iFixit is giving. Here's their link: http://bit.ly/1dubuCn
    Are these the same type of RAM cards? (The type is PC3-8500)

    It would be really great to know this. Thank you! :D

    The other one is PC3-10600. It may work and if it will, it will revert to the slower transfer speeds of PC3-8500.

    Until I know, Macbook DDR3-1066 modules must be CAS-7 latency to work well. Slower latency modules can work, but maybe will affect integrated GPU performance.
