    I have an early 2011 MBP 13'' with Core i7 right now.

    Is it better to get this or this? Would the latter give any advantages over the other?

    That is true. But does 1600 Mhz RAM even work with the MBP 13 (early 2011)? That is the question.

    It might show up that it does, but it will downclock due to chipset limitations.

    It doesn't on the 15 and 17" machines it posts and runs at 1600. Not sure about the 13".

    What "About this Mac" says and the chipset does are two entirely different things.

    So I guess it's better to just get the 1333 Mhz RAM...
