    Hi :)

    I have just purchased a 2011 MacBook Pro and I am looking to put the following RAM into it:

    2X 8GB PC3-10700 667MHZ

    Will this work with the MacBook?

    Thanks

    You need: 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600)
    You never mentioned the number of pins, be careful of those. 240 pin is desktop memory and will not fit a laptop. 204 pins is what you want.

    Apologies, it is laptop memory as it's coming out of my current Windows machine. From what I've ready online, the 10600 and 10700 should be the same, they are just labelled differently by manufacturers...Just wanted to see if anyone had used the one I mentioned in my original post.

    You should have no issues. Unless you short something out in the process of swapping RAM, the worst that can happen is the computer refusing to boot due to incorrect memory. Putting the original memory back in will fix that.
