    Hi!

    I'd like to upgrade my mid 2010 15" mbp from 4gb to 8gb, which is the limit.

    However, I can't seem to find 8gb sticks at the 1066mhz speed. I wouldnt like to buy 2x4gb sticks as they would be worthless if I ever upgrade my mbp, because then I would want 16gb.

    So will there be any issues if I grab just 1 8gb stick of a higher speed, lets say 1600mhz?

    The 2010 MBP will probably not accept one 8 GB module, thus it is better to use two 4 GB modules.


    Although my 2009 MBP came with 1067 MHz 204-pin DDR3 SO-DIMM RAM, I now use 1333 MHz 204-pin DDR3 SO-DIMM RAM without problems with it.
    The 2010 MBP also uses 1067 MHz 204-pin DDR3 SO-DIMM RAM, but I do not know, how well 1600 MHz RAM would behave.

    Well if even the 2008 model accepts 1333, I think the mid 2010 would accept 1600mhz, it's logical but how could I make sure?

    Any links for that?

    And why wouldnt it take a single 8gb stick?
