Dear all, I have a 13-inch, Mid 2010 Macbook Pro with the following Specs:

Processor 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
Graphics NVIDIA GeForce 320M 256 MB

Could I install any of the following without upgrading any other parts? If so which of these brands would you recommend I purchase?

8GB 2X 4GB PC3-8500 1067MHz DDR3 APPLE RAM MEMORY SODIMM 204pin
Crucial CT2CP51264BC1067 8GB 204-PIN PC3-8500 SODIMM DDR3 (4GBx2)
8GB 2X 4GB APPLE MacBook Pro Memory PC3-8500 1066MHz 1067MHz DDR3 SODIMM 204pin RAM (PARTS-QUICK) by parts-quick

Or could any of you recommend an alternative, I am leaning towards the crucial but want to ensure that I can just exchange out my old memory for this.

Many thanks

Michael

All three of them look good to use. I'd stay away from anything deemed as "Apple RAM" or "Mac RAM" just because you'll pay extra for it.

Any 1066Mhz laptop RAM should and will work. I personally went with G-Skill.

crucial sucks to be honest. I had ram go bad with them. Happend on four orders

My last ram purchace was from macsales.com (aka owc) and it was 2 dollers more then crucial on newegg.ca (With shipping)

I went Macsales and I am very happy, they even tossed in the tools to open my macbook to install the ram for an extra 5 bucks.

I would go with them instead. plus, they are much better on returens.ect and you will have less headakes because its for mac.

crucial is just a pain.but $2 cheaper.
