    Hello,

    My brother was looking at upgrading RAM on his T9600 macbook pro. My question is, does this model support 1333 Mhz RAM, or just 1067? I wanted to know for sure before upgrading. I checked the page on intel, but did not see a section for 'memory specifications" <http://ark.intel.com/products/35563/Intel-Core2-Duo-Processor-T9600-%286M-Cache-2_80-GHz-1066-MHz-FSB%29>

    When I upgraded the ram on my early 2011 MBP, I was able to find out on the website that it supported 1600 under 'memory specifications'. <http://ark.intel.com/products/50067/Intel-Core-i7-2720QM-Processor-%286M-Cache-2_20-GHz%29>
    Any immediate feedback would be greatly appreciated because of cyber monday prices. Thanks.

    yeh it'l show 1333, but it will run at 1066(1067) MHz. my core 2 duo 2009 17" macbook pro shows 1333MHz aswell, but is doesn't run at that speed. I tested the RAM and the data throughput was the same as my other macs with 1066.
