Don't you mean $100? $49.99 x 2 = $99.98
Sorry, I just woke up but my brain is still sleeping!
Wow, now that is a deal. I am very tempted by that even though I would never need 16 gigs of RAM
I bought this today! Thanks for sharing. I work in IT and every employee in my department bought two sticks.
Now I just need a SSD and my MBP will destroy all.
-_- Wish I got a MBP instead of a MBA.
One of those refurb quad core MBP 15" + 16GB RAM + an SSD would literally slay.
Thanks what a great deal...
will these work with next MBP?? i will be getting the 15in in a year or less. is there any reason these wouldn't work in the next gen MBP??
It's a foolish idea to purchase RAM a year in advance on a next model that you don't even know what the spec's are. Are you kidding us Such a foolish question
why?? apple isn't going to include 16gb as a default, and they wouldn't lower the max amount. its a pretty safe bet. plus this is cheap as dirt
plus wouldn't i be able to use this in my mac mini??? early 2009??!
EDIT: just found out i couldn't for the mini, only up to 8
Do these work with the Macbook for sure?
My Macbook: Late 2011 15" Macbook.
More than likely you would unless Apple starts pulling a MBA with the Pros and has non-user removable RAM
There no reason to. This will only become cheaper. A few weeks ago the deal was around $120. It not unreasonable to think this won't get to $75 by the time the next one is released. It's never a good Idea to purchase ram in advanced unless you will use it in the next week or two.
What's the difference that product and the "For Mac" products?
Like this one
Does anyone know about the quality of this ram? Does it basically perform the same as Crucial memory?
good point, i didn't think it would get lower than this
From some of the prior reports and problems with Crucial by MBP owners, I would be looking for a comparison that is a little more reliable.
Okay, could you recommend a brand other than Crucial then? Thanks!
Im running 8GB of Crucial Ram for the last 3 weeks and it passed all the test.
No problems here, great price.
1 x ($39.99) Crucial 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Laptop Memory Model CT2KIT51264BC1339
I've been running Crucial 4x4GB in my 2010 iMac and Crucial 2x4GB in my 2011 MBP for the past 3-4 months with no issues:
Crucial 8GB Kit 2-4GB DDR3-1333 (PC3 10600) SODIMM 204pin CT2CP51264BC1339
I always thought Crucial provided good memory. That's why I was slightly surprised that the previous user said it had problems
I run Crucial in MBP - I have G Skill in iMac and work MBP - works fine.
Because the next version may have a processor with a higher bus speed, rendering this memory too slow. Not a low possibility either
Generally it is fine memory, as are lots of other brands. SInce you asked, recently I have mainly used Patriot, but that has nothing to do with reputation, it was just what was on sale and in stock when I was purchasing. My philosophy is if the manufacturer is a well known name, has a good warranty policy they back, and the store purchasing from has a good return policy, I will take the chance and return the item if it doesn't work for me. There have been numerous reports on here with the 16GB Crucial failing memory tests. If I remember correctly the reports were mainly from 17" MBP owners, so this fact could be a big determining factor, but none the less stands.
Lots report that they have no issues with Crucial, but make sure that they have 16GB sets, as stating that you use brand x and have no problems is not a good measure of quality or reliability of all products from a manufacturer. If one is not using the latest, comparable technology it is not a fair determination of reliability and quality, since processes change, reliability can slip or change with the newer tech processes yielding all past results invalid. Just food for thought.
