I'm trying to upgrade my macbook for the first time, i have the base macbook pro 13 inch 2012. I found this on new egg http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233242 and i dont really know if its a good buy. from searching up older forums I know that corsair is sort of a brand name brand, and the specifications seem to match the ram i have in my macbook now (ddr3, 1600mhz). can anyone tell me if this is a good buy, or if there is something better than this one? Thanks in advance.

BTW I am in Canada, so most of the amazon products cant be shipped to me :(

do a search on macsales.com and you will know for certain what is the recommended memory for your laptop
macsales is OWC, a well recognized vendor

Yea this ram is the correct ram specifications. I highly recommend this ram actually. I just installed a 16gb kit in my cousins 13" 2012 MacBook. I recommend going with 16gb if you can afford it.

Theres size in RAM? like diffrent lengths and width? how do i know this is the right one?
I mean RAM size as in 4GB, 8GB, etc.

But yes there are "desktop RAMs" which are a lot bigger.
This one is correct.

You can tell by the size. Like literally.
Desktop RAMs are twice the size of Laptop memory.
