    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?

    if its not can someone please point me to one that is!

    thanks in advance

    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.
