    Just a quick question, guys. I was planning to get 2x4GB RAM very soon for my 2010 13" MacBook Pro, and I was wondering if there are going to be any downfalls or cons if I over to overload it with that excessive.. power.

    And I've read on some few sites stating that this is the best deal so far ( to get those RAMs, but it's Amazon, and shipping will cost quite a bit.

    So, I was wondering about being aware of the following:

    1) Type of manufacturer
    2) Heating up issues?
    3) Shortening battery lifespan without charge for short mobile usage?
    4) Best place to get these RAMs in Australia?

    Thanks guys. :)

    1. Go with Crucial, Gskill, or anything OWC sells. You might find a better deal than your link on Newegg.
    2. No
    3. No

    Cool guys, thanks for the input!

    NZed: They do? I usually drop by this newsagent around my area and they don't do Mac magazines. only Power PC, PC Authority and other stuff. Maybe I didn't pay close attention to OWC as well? I'll have another look.. I'll be using MacFixit to order my parts for the moment (until I find a cheaper source?)
