    Hi fokes,

    I have a MBP 13 inch 2010 7,1 with 4GB 1067 Mhz (PC3-8500), 1x X25-M 80GB SSD and 1x X25-V 40 GB SSD.

    Because I do a lot of VM Fusion and RAM is cheap as hell now days, I want to do a upgrade.
    since I experience the speed of a SSD, I also want to use the fastest 8GB RAM 1333 Mhz (PC3-10600).

    My question is as follow, can someone confirm a stable macbook with 8GB RAM 1333 Mhz (PC3-10600) which is the same MBP as I have?

    MY other question, will a future memory upgrade decrease my battery life?

    Search is your friend. ;)

    Yes, 1333 MHz RAM will work fine. I've done it several times. I have not seen a decrease in battery life with more RAM.

    It's a crapshoot whether or not if will work. Just to be safe, just get the 1066 which I've installed on several 2010 Macs without any issues.
