    Have a 2011 15, 2.0 i7. I read the 1600 thread, seems like people are having good results with it, but some still say no. Its like $10 more, so that really isn't a problem, even by todays small wallets :). Any reason not to get it? I;m running lion and win 7. THANKS!!!!

    I imagine it would work fine, but you're really not going to see a performance boost, so I wouldn't bother.

    If i remember correctly, only the 2.2GHz and 2.3GHz i7 support the 1600MHz memory modules, so there is no question which one to choose.
