    Hey guys, I was going to get this one right here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231297

    Any comments/suggestions? I'm not very tech savvy and have never done a memory upgrade before, so just want to make sure it's the right choice. I apologize in advance for the extreme ubiquity of my question :p

    Also, what kind of screwdriver will I need?

    Hey thanks a lot! Btw, are there any differences between the two? (one I posted and the one you posted?) Also, is G-Link a reliable brand? Some people tell me Crucial is better but I'm not really very well versed on the topic.

    The one you posted is 1066MHz while your MBP supports 1333MHz too. 1066MHz should work and the difference would be negligible but to guarantee the best compatibility, get 1333MHz. It's also cheaper.

    G.Skill is a reliable brand. Personally I find no reason to pay more for brand X RAM if brand Y is cheaper and sold by a reliable reseller (such as NewEgg) and carries a lifetime warranty.
