I always go Crucial but YMMV. As long as it's the correct RAM (DDR3 SODIMM 1600MHz) and not any faster speeds you shouldn't have any issues.

Genuinely there's no difference with performance if you're using the correct RAM. It's down to personal preference and your experience with that manufacturer. Whilst I personally prefer Crucial RAM due to my experience of their reliability and return policy, Kingston is absolutely fine as well.

I've upgraded all my Macs with Crucial RAM as soon as i got them. I'm also using several of their SSDs. Definitely can recommend Crucial products.

Hi, just to jump on this thread, I'm getting a 2.6 GHz model myself and am wondering if anybody has any experience with these RAM from China? They seem to be no brand generic ones.



This one is branded SZcell but I've never heard of them before:

I've always used Crucial Ram for upgrading my Macs for around 20 years. It's always been excellent.
