    Ok I have a Macbook Pro Mid 2009 model and here's the specs

    As I'm aware, it only has 2GB ram and I was wondering what type of ram I should install and which one would work best for a faster performance. I was even just thinking about adding 4gb but if 8gb would make it significantly faster, I'd buy it. I tried using VMware to operate Windows and iOS at the same time, my performance slowed down pretty bad. Would 8GB fix this?

    I went to Best Buy a moment ago and the rep told me to buy a Corsair DDR3 8gb Laptop Ram from their website.

    He suggested I buy this

    Can you guys help me decide which ones the best one to buy?

    Um, that's the wrong RAM for a mid 2009.

    You need DDR3 1066MHz (PC3-8500).

    Go to for your memory needs.
