So both are compatible, even though Macs are supposed to support only 8GB?
With the 2012 Macbook Pro, yes. Just to be really sure, you can always look through the reviews and check and see if anyone mentions a Macbook Pro. I looked through the KomputerBay one and everyone seems to say that it works great with the 2011 MBP, which means it'll work with yours as well.

Your computer uses 1600MHz memory. You can use 1333MHz stuff, but you'll take a little performance hit.

Thanks for pointing that out, cancelled my order, searching for 1600mhz one now

There isn't a huge difference unless you overclock you system, which you can't anyways. The difference would end up being ~2% on a desktop PC with a fast processor. Not worth the extra money IMHO, unless you can find 1600MHz for the same price.

Ok, since the 1600 ones are 1.5v and my mac runs at 1.35v will that cause any damage?

Thanks, turns out the KomputerBay Apple ones cant be shipped to my location, but found another listing that seems to be the same, just without the Apple sticker, can you confirm its the same?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Komputerbay-PC3-12800-1600MHz-204-Pin-10-10-10-27/dp/B007Q2JQNW/ref=lh_ni_t

If that one is the same and good, the choice would be between it and the 1333Mhz version

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Komputerbay-PC3-10600-1333MHz-204-Pin-9-9-9-25/dp/B00698WP50/ref=cm_srch_res_rtr_3?tag=5336090759-21

For less than 10GBP, and given that the 1.5v does not do any damage, and 1600 is always preferable than 1333Mhz, I would go for the first one.

Yeah, either's fine. You can always check the reviews to see what people are posting (ie. "Works great in my 2011 MBP") to find out compatibility
