    so the 10600 is "value"

    and the 10666 is "performance"?

    what's the diff? (they're both the same price at newegg.)

    There is absolutely no difference between 10600 and 10666. It's a rounding thing. people chose to round the number in different ways, but it's all exactly the same memory. Well...assuming all other stats are equal.

    It's all the same stuff. Anyone trying to say one is performance and one is value is just pulling it out of...somewhere.

    There is no difference. Apparently "Mac savvy tech".... isn't.
