I may just have to spring for this... My MB can only address 3GB but for $30... Might as well have some unused but gain 1GB over what I got!
How does this one compare with Kingston? Which would actually be the best for a previous generation MBP?
Ram is ram. If you arent overclocking it then it doesnt matter. It either works or it doesnt.
Would both 667 Mhz or 800 Mhz 4GB RAM work on early 2008 MBP?
it should. if you mix and match, it should just clock the faster ram down to the slower speed (ie if you had an 800mhz stick and a 667mhz, they would both run @ 667)
edit: A little further reading indicates that the early 2008 (penryn MBPs) are a bit more finicky when it comes to accepting 800mhz sticks vs the merom SR in the late 2007 revision. Just keep that in mind.
Oh, so I guess I'd be better off by just taking the 667 ones?
Btw, could you tell me what's the difference between these two?
Which one would be best for a MBP?
What about these 2:
The second one was designed specifically for Macs. Whether that makes a big difference or not....I'm not so sure.
I ended up going with this for my GFs MBP. Should be here today or Monday.
CORSAIR 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 667
So whenever it's 2x2 GB, it results in 4096 MB ram in total, correct?
Unless your hardware or OS cannot address that much RAM, yes.
