Please only answer if you are 100% sure. Thank you.
The RAM specifications are cleverly hidden on the MacBook Pro's tech spec page.
Not PC2, that's DDR2 memory. These use DDR3, and according to Crucial:
http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=MacBook Pro 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (15-inch DDR3)
it's PC3-8500 for both the 2.53 and 2.8 models.
PC3-8500 DDR3 1066MHz
Taken straight from OWC, who would know.
Google's hard to use though. It's much easier to ask obvious questions here.
So does this mean my pc-5300 wont work in the new MBP?
I have the memory from my last MBP that Apple replaced under AppleCare.
That would so suck.
Different kind of memory. Won't work.
wow.. 140 for a 4gb memory upgrade??
is it just me or is that a lot...
DDR3 RAM is expensive right now.
Most reasonable upgrade apple has offered in my opinion. 2x2GB of DDR3 is expensive. You could find it cheaper though.
Compared to the DDR2 that I just found out will not work in the new MacBook Pro, its double. I bought the DDR2 almost a year ago too!
See here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...309121118 1309239101&name=DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500)
The upgrade is not too bad actually. DDR3 is very expensive. Man, I am really leaning towards the 2.53 option now. It actually doesn't sound so bad relatively speaking.
Coming from someone who once spent $649 for 16mb of RAM for my PowerPC 9600/350MHz back in 1996... $140 to MAX out the RAM seems pretty good to me. But I'll be there will be cheaper prices hitting the market very soon....
