    Thanks. Was looking for some cheap ram and 30 bucks is about as cheap as it gets. Good find man.

    One of the reviewers with the same computer as me said it worked fine, so I'm going off of that.

    That was my logic. Quickest purchasing decision I've ever made.

    Thought process:

    1)OMG RAM
    2)OMG 30 BUCKS WITH REBATE
    3)*briefly glances at specs to check compatibility*
    4)*Add to shopping chart. *

    Don't really know. I was joking around about caring about the sub-$10 price difference.

    Apple says 1066. And the "Cas Latency" is 7 on the stuff I ordered vs the stuff here with a "Cas Latency" of 9. And timings of 7-7-7-20 vs. 9-9-9-24. While I don't have the slightest idea what any of that means, I assume lower latency is good? Right?

    Plus, the RAM I'm getting is a BAMF blue color, vs. this stuff in boring green.

    Got in on it when Amazon had it for the same price last month. 16GB upgrade for about $60 (sold my old ram on ebay for $20 - so really I only paid $40).

    Well, yeah o_o... But I have not seen 8gb kits for $200 in a while. Usually hovering in the $100 or (way) less these days.

    Apple sells 8GB ram as a $200 upgrade.

    I'll have to pick this up for my new MBP. Thanks OP

    Have you guys ever used Patriot Memory? Fry's has the 8GB 1333mhz for $40. Looks like a good deal but never used Patriot and was unsure about the 1333mhz in my 2010 2.4ghz 15".

    If you check price watch and check for deals looks like 40 bucks is about the going price for an 8 gb upgrade ( 2 x 4 gb ).
