    did you get the new aluminum mbp? I'm pretty sure those run DDR3 Ram. DDR2 was used in the older MB(White/Black) and MBP.

    So if you have the new aluminum pro this will not work.

    Yep, that's the correct RAM for the old MBPs.

    That should fit then. I just got this setup from fry's a couple weeks ago and it seems to work just fine. I had trouble getting the screws out to change it but my buddy had the right screwdriver and we were able to change it it about 2 mins.
