    just watch out for 204pin DDR3 and it will work.
    If you can find some look for 1.35V RAM supposedly work on 2011 MBPs and it reduces total system power by about as much as an HDD/SSD consumes.
    I found one for almost the exact same price as the 1.5V version and if the price is almost the same it is worth it. Not if it is much more expensive.

    True, but the speed and CAS latency are also important.

    1333 MHz and 1600 MHz will definitely work as long as the CAS Latency is 9 and the memory is "unbuffered". Some 1866 MHz have been reported to work in the 2011 Mini, but I haven't seen any confirmations of those working flawlessly in the 2011 MBP. I do recall a thread about a user having issues with 1866 MHz in his 2011 MBP.

    Yes. 1.35 Volt RAM will also work as long as it meets all of the other criteria.

    OK, you completely lost me! So can i get the 1600mhz and 1.35V with the refurbed macbooks from early 2011? What do you mean by "other criteria?"

    Yes. By other criteria I mean:
    Non ecc, unbuffered, 204 pin

    Will F3-12800CL9S-4GBSK DDR3 1600MHz work on new iMac 27"

    I see it has something around the module, does it fit at all ?
