    Kingston RAM is tested, Mac compatible, and comes with a lifetime warranty. Go for it.

    thats the one I have in my "old body" macbook pro, I had to buy that one (which by the way works perfect) because the crucial that I bougth before was cr@p and actually slowed my system down. Go for it!

    I just installed 4g Kingston RAM in my MBP Classic (DDR2 667mhz SSDRAM) and it was certified for Apple laptops. It was the highest rated RAM by customers (97% rated it excellent) on Newegg.com so you should be good with what you got.

    Okay does it have to be 204pin or 200pin as i done looking on the net and a site said the ddr3 1066 from them are 200pin or is that site lieing?

    And it will work with like 1x 1GB and 1x 2GB making it 3GB or is the best to go 4GB as RAM here in AU cost a **** load.

    I'm going to vouch for Kingston aswell. My cousin got it for his MacBookPro and it's working flawlessly.
