Anyone have any recommendations for the best performing and quality 8GB RAM for the new 2011 MBP's?
Assuming it uses the same RAM as the previous model, crucial.com has an 8GB kit for just under $100. That's what I'm planning to get.

It does not use the same RAM.
You need 1333MHz RAM -- prior MBPs used 1066MHz. Both are 204-pin though.
Seems this model does not support Dual channel memory, the last model did.
Matching pairs seems to be less relevant this time around, Crucial has 4GB sticks for ~50 but are currently sold out.

Sorry to ask what could be a simple question. Is this ram suitable for the new 2011 13' Macbook pro.
From my understanding, I am planning on ordering 2 of these which should take my Macbook Pro to 8gb ram. Is this correct? Thanks again.
Can someone help please. Im ready to order it but im just not sure about all the "CL9, non ECC, unbuffered, PC-10600" stuff. It is 1333MHz, 204 pin SO-DIMM so Im pretty sure its right but I just want to make sure.
How is the crucial's latency compared to any other options? Is there a faster option out there? If not, I'll pick em up.
First: don't buy that.
Ok -- so that is the correct RAM for these machines, but it's a 2GB stick, which is what they come with. That's not an upgrade, just a replacement, so I'm guessing you don't want that.
You should look for 4GB sticks, for a total of 8GB -- that's your upgrade. They should run about $40-45 each.
Something like this:
Thanks for clearing that up mate. I was under the impression that I had another two extra slots for ram lol. I ended up ordering the 8gb kit from OWC . Should get here when my new Macbook arrives.
Glad to help -- OWC is an equally sound choice.
I think the list of Mac users who would shed tears of joy were Apple to give us four RAM slots is quite long!
They don't even need to give us 4 slots...just stop filling them all up.
that's a tactic you see from the likes of dell and hp to punish you for not buying THEIR ram upgrades.
It costs Apple a couple of pennies to put 1 4GB DIMM in there instead of 2 2GB ones.
I would give them 10 bucks on that pennies investment if they would just stop this practice.
Whats the preferred RAM make on this forum. Performance for DDR3 RAM will be the same i'm talking about reliability, warranty, customer service.
Im in the UK as well -anyone had to RMA RAM to anyone?
Good point. I never really thought of that before; it's quite mean.
Wow, just realized that. The 2011 13"MBP have TWO 2GB sticks, and two slots.
