In my frustration (two hours of reading threads and posts!!!) I have come to my last resort... creating a new thread. I just recently ordered a MBP and like everything I own I can't keep it stock. I'm looking at replacing the ram but don't understand how to pick the right one. I know the new MBP are 1600 MHz, but I'm having trouble picking the right one as I really don't want to deal with mailing back returns and waiting. So I essentially have three questions: 1. Will any ram matching these specs work: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231582 2. What ram or suggestions do you suggest? PS: I know 16 GB isn't necessary, but I figure I might as well max it out. Also, fwiw I have ordered an Intel 330 240GB SSD that will be installed once the mac gets here.
