I have trying searching the 3million+ threads that have been created lately since the macbook pros were released but can really mind my answer.

Can someone please be nice and recommend a 8gb (4x2) RAM that is really good and instructions on how to install it. Is it is to install? Video anywhere?

iFixit has tons of step by step repair manuals. I like Crucial for Ram but I don't know if they will be the lowest in price. I would look on YouTube for a video of the installation. Other people on the forum buy Ram from Newegg

I just buy whatever the cheapest is on Play.com really. It comes with a lifetime warranty and is that cheap, I really don't see the benefit for spending big.

Yes I know, but with RAM the price that it is (£15 for 2GB delivered) then I always have a stick spare. Take out each stick one at a time and run the machine, if it acts up, I know which one is faulty.

Crucial 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600). how come I also see ones with a higher PC3 i.e. PC3 10666)
