    Ok, before I get yelled at, I did a search.
    Could not find an answer.
    Got the new 13 inch Mackbook (Oct'09 MC207LL/A)
    I know it takes DDR3-1066/DDR3 PC3-8500 204-pin SODIMM.

    So I did a search and found that many users are upgrading their 13 inch Macbook Pros (or any other 09 Macbook Pro, as I think they all take the same RAM?)

    Many pointed me to this:
    http://www.amazon.com/Crucial-CT2KIT25664BC1067-204-PIN-PC3-8500-SODIMM/dp/B001KUL012/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1259539184&sr=8-1

    Which looks to be the same as this:
    http://www.crucial.com/store/mpartspecs.aspx?mtbpoid=2E9B2B4EA5CA7304

    But when I go thru the Crucial Memory Advisor Tool it gives me this:
    http://www.crucial.com/store/mpartspecs.aspx?mtbpoid=18CAEA65A5CA7304

    The "model" #s are different.
    CT898327 vs CT1115272

    But what is the difference?
    Will the CT898327 on Amazon work with my Macbook?
    Or do I need the CT1115272?

    Thanks in Advance.

    I do not know the answer I'm sorry but on a related note, is upgrading yourself actually cheaper than getting apple to do it? I keep hearing apple is expensive, but Crucial seems just as expensive here in the UK, unless I'm doing something wrong (bearing in mind I haven't bought the macbook yet and it's £69 extra to get 4gig over 2gig). Perhaps its my student discount.
    Hope you find your answer :]

    Never got the crucial RAM to work in mine and I was trying with what their memory tool told me to go with. Once installed, all of the batches they sent me would prevent the Macbook from waking up from sleep.

    I finally just ordered some generic Mushkin RAM from an online store I use normally and everything was flawless on the first try.

    Just installed the crucial 4gb kit on my 13inch MBP. Works flawlessly and good value for money (about 80 quid all in). System is much faster now.

    Go for it!

    So are you saying I should just get the macbook with 4GIG RAM id I haven't already? (I guess you weren't replying to me) but it costs £69.. If the cheapest you got it was £80 and you had to bother buying it yourself..

    I did a search for a couple other 13 inch Macbook and Macbook Pros and each model "book" has a different model # for the 4GB kit. But the memory looks the same.
    My guess they only use that number for tracking what belongs to each macbook.

    I guess I will find out.
