    Hey guys, can someone point me in the direction of compatible and reliable RAM for my mid-2010 MBP? There's a bunch of brands and specs, I easily get lost in the jargon of it all. Thanks for any help.

    What's the difference between that and this one? Like I said, I easily get lost in it all. I just know the second one is cheaper. :confused:

    1066 is what Apple recommend however some people have had luck with the 1333. 1333 is more common hence the lower price.

    Is this set comparable then? It has more reviews (and more positive overall), and plenty of Mac users. Thanks for the help already, guys.

    Yep, that'll work too. I went with the Corsair because it's $35 shipped and it's a cool looking blue color.

    Both the Corsair and G Skill use Hynix chips, so I'm assuming they're almost identical in performance.

    Fastest possible SSD I can get, and now 8GB of RAM on the way. She's gonna be a beast and a half :D

    Cool, much appreciated for the input! I went ahead with the Corsair since it was cheaper. My MBP has only 4 GBs RAM, so maxing it to 8GB would be a pleasant boost for my multi-tasking!
