    I'm looking at upgrading my 2.2Ghz MBP's RAM from 2GB to 4GB and came across this link at OWC showing "High Performance" RAM with a lower CAS latency (CL4). Does anyone have any opinions on whether these modules would be better for me than the regular CL5 modules?

    Thanks

    As Barefeats showed, the performance gain is negligible at best. Probably not worth the extra $10.

    Very negligible performance difference. I ended up buying Mac-specific 2x2GB Corsair CL4 modules for my MBP, but it was on sale at Fry's at the time so I got both sticks for like $90.
