    Hello, I have a standard MacBook Pro 4.1 (Penryn i think?) with 2GB of ram. I've recently been hitting slowdowns and I'm going to upgrade the RAM to 4GB. I know how to install it I'm just not 100% on what kind of stick will work with my macbook.

    Is this RAM stick a good choice?

    That ram would work fine, but are you sure you only need one stick? If it's stock, they usually just give you 2 1GB sticks, and you want to get 2 2GB sticks.

    I've been using this on my Macbook and my iMac and haven't had any problems yet, but if you're worried

    you can pay 3 bucks + tax more on "Apple tested" ram.

    I personally don't see the difference and I think it's just a scam, but I may be wrong.
