    I am pretty sure that 1333 would work too. Speed difference is negligible at best most likely you'd need a specific memory bench to even bench any kind of difference.

    Just get the cheaped 8GB kit you can find that conforms to JEDEC 1.5V specs and is not noname ram. Corsair VS or Kingston ValueRam are always well supported, cheap and reliable.

    Corsair is more reliable and cheaper.

    Got a 8GB DDR3 1333MHz from amazon for 30 bucks (21 euro).
    Have it for like 2 months with no problem :)

    You will never notice an increased in RAM speed in real life scenarios, just buy whatever the computer came with.

    Look for your computer's specs RAM on newegg.com, that's likely the cheapest place.

    Not that a 5 second google search could've told you the same...

    Does not take 5 sec with the different amount of info people are giving also I'm not only looking for cheapest but fast and good reliability too.

    No point paying if X is £1 cheaper then Y.

    And x is not reliable and is slow

    First, I searched for the macbook pro on wikipedia to find your RAM type. Page available here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MacBook_Pro

    Then, using newegg's built-in "narrowing down" engine, I was able to find all these models of RAM which will both fit and work in your MBP.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...00445 600000401&IsNodeId=1&name=8GB (2 x 4GB)

    You can then go by reviews/best warranty terms to pick your RAM. RAM is RAM, a good module is a good module. Except in very rare cases, there is no such thing as "faster" RAM, a given clock speed and latency will always yield the same speed, regardless of brand.

    If you are in europe, use google's shopping tool to find a retailer with the part number of your selection.

    So yes, it does take less than a minute to find what you need on the internet.

    Crucial, Kingston, OWC, G.Skill, Samsung, Mushkin, Corsair are all reputable brands of RAM, all of them will do the job just fine, not a single one is more reliable than another, bad sticks happen on any batch of RAM.

    Buy RAM with the correct specs and with a good return policy in case you do get a bad stick and you'll be fine. It really is that simple.
