1067mhz is the fastest speed your MBP will take, so putting in faster RAM won't make any difference, but by all means jumping from 2-4GB should give you a nice speed increase to little things you do.

:eek: Actually i couldn't find 1067 Mhz Ram on market , All i could find was 1333 Mhz..
:eek:
As posted, your speed is fixed, but you will notice a boost in things like multitasking, and RAM intensive applications
Between if you say multitasking, but still when i use Final Cut Pro.. i see Spinning Balls :confused: .


lastly.. i am thinking to add 4 GB more 1333 Mhz :D
any inputs on your thoughts :apple:

That's cause it's actually 1066 ;) It still baffles me why Apple lists the RAM as 1067. The max your MBP can take is 8GB (2 x 4gb). Also, as you've already bought 1333mhz, it's a good idea not to mix 1066mhz RAM in there.

My idea was adding more 4 GB Ram 1333Mhz to my Macbook Pro
4 + 4 = 8GB Ram. Will it be good .... :apple:

As i know 1066 /67 Mhz wont be able to calculate with 1333 Mhz when both are added together. ;)

It depends. Do you have one 4gb stick or 2x2gb sticks? If the latter option, then you have to get 2x4gb sticks. If the former option, you can just add a 4gb stick to make it 2x4gb.

Go for it, I have 6gb in mine and now the price of 8gb kits has gone down to £30 I think I can afford to take the jump :p
Its about if i will be running into the problem of Mhz ? .... in near future.
