Been a PC Guy since the dawn of the first IBM PC's (yea, I'm that old). Decided I wanted to try something new. Getting bored in my retirement so I purchased a "used fixer-upper" 13" 2.4GHZ MacBook PRO described as "early 2010" for almost free (well, real cheap). Never ever used a Mac other than watched a friend use his (I do have an iPhone & iPad). Anyway, it has no HD, no problem, I have a spare 240GB SSD to drop in. Has no O/S so I had a Mac friend create a bootable thumb drive and it has no RAM which is where the questions come in. It seems (compared to PC RAM) MAC ram is a bit on the high $$ side (this uses PC3-8500 1066MHZ) but isn't ANYTHING Apple related overpriced! Also I read it only "officially" supports 8GB although I have read 16GB will work if it's the right stuff. I am looking for a VERY cheap source for a pair of 4GIG sticks that will work in this thing. Used, new, whatever, just c-h-e-a-p. Anyone know what will work or where to find it? eBay is high, Amazon is about the same as eBay. I understand I have to use the 1066MHZ which, unlike a PC which adjusts to just about anything. It kills me to pay almost $80 for 8GIGs ram. Can anyone give me some suggestions on what or where I can find cheap? Do I HAVE to use the 1066 PC-8500? I'd like to go for 16GB but that's way too high.
