    does the 13 inch MBP support DDR 3 1600 ram? It seems the standard in the MBP is 1333. Any links to 8gb worth of 1600 ram if it works with an early 2011 13 inch mbp? thanks.

    Amazon

    I picked up two 4 GB Kingston PC3 8500 Ram chips for about $45 total on Amazon, delivered. My late 2008 MacBook Pro reads them correctly.

    Greatest buy ever.

    thats only 1066 mhz im looking for 1600 mhz since 1333 mhz is standard. I was wondering if 1600 mhz works in a MBP

    Thanks for that. I love G skill ram I have used it before. Now my question for those two rams. The 5$ difference is between 9-9-9 timing and 11-11-11 timing. Im guessing I should spend the extra 5$ and go with the 9-9-9

    I would yes. Plus you get a freebie with it as well.
