    I would like to expand the RAM of my MBP 15" 2010 to 4GB x 2 as price of RAM is so attractive now :) Thank you very much for your help! :apple:

    pretty much any ram is compatible, as long as you have the right specs.

    The general consensus is that Crucial RAM is your best option. It can be found on NewEgg.

    And on Amazon (so you can get free 2 day shipping if you belong to Amazon Prime)

    Crucial Ram has never let me down (I'm an IT administrator and have upgraded RAM many times, Windows and Mac with Crucial)

    If you go on OWC, you can see what types fit your computer. If OWC sells it, it's good stuff.

    Agreed. I just installed 8 GB ram in my MBP-15 i5 along with a WD Scorpio Black 750GB from OWC last weekend. Worked great with no issues on either.
