I am attempting to upgrade my "new" month old MBP
I have the 2x2GB (2.2GBZ quad core i7, 1333 MHz DDR3 5DRAM) that it came with from Apple and I would like to get 2x4GB.

The ones I saw on line from Crucial are: DDR3 PC3-10600 • CL=9 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR3-1333 • 1.35V • 512Meg x 64 • Part #: CT2KIT51264BD1339

What is the PC3-10600? CL=9?

Why are there so many different letter/number combos and what do they mean?

How much $ is a good price to pay?

What is the best after market brand: Crucial, Kingston or Corisar?

Is there anything that I need to know when ordering on line?

Thank you for any help !

Those ones will work, anything between 40-50$ is a good price

There are probably at least 5 other current/rather recent thread topics on this very same question related to what memory to buy & where.

If you take the time to search, your answer & more will be presented. In fact, there are a lot of direct links to where to buy & what to get. There may even be one or two that point ya to an 8GB upgrade for 25 bux after rebate.
