Whats the difference?
I am pretty sure both are compatible with the macbook. I think.
Just get the DDR3-1066.
DDR3 1066 is 8500 memory. What you need to be sure is that you are getting 204 pin DDR 3 RAM.
8500 is the naming convention, whereas 1066 is the actual speed. 1066*8 ~ 8500.
1066 DDR is 533 Megahertz RAM with two transfer cycles per clock for an effective clock rate of 1066 Megahertz.
Whats the difference then between these 2 G Skill ones then?
The clock speed.
1066 (8500) < 1333 (10666)
The first one is faster (1333 MHZ compared to 1066 MHZ). Looks like you're confusing the 10666 and the 1066.
10666 memory didn't work in my MacBook (Late 2008). I had to return it to New Egg for the 8500 speed.
Hope this saves everyone time.
hey guys, new here...
was wondering...what about the Macbook Pro MB133LL/A model??
2.4Ghz 2GB of ram...wondering if this model supports the 240-Pin PC3 8500 RAM sticks?????
ive been researching with mixed results..
so i just went ahead and ordered the regular PC2-5300 RAM (4GB kit)...
Your macbook only supports 200 Pin DDR2 667 Mhz RAM.
The new MB/MBP only support 204 Pin DDR3 1066 Mhz RAM.
ok good..thank you, im all set then..
it says here that the PC3-8500 RAM is compatible on my model...
am i mistaken?
I chose "Previous Families" Macbook Pro 15" on this page to reach the above page, by the way...
Dont mean to hijack this thread or anything...just want to know if I can get a boost here for a new system...
i really dont like to bump a post like this, but could someone please explain this to me???????
