    Which one of these three will work with the MacBook Pro (13 inch, 2011)? And is there a significant difference in performance between these three? And what would the downsides of purchasing one of these be? Thanks in advance!

    Oops, forgot. :eek:

    Will any of these work? I want 8GB, and I'd like to stick with Corsair. Price isn't really an issue, so if 1600mhz means better performance, id go with that.

    Oh, fail. I thought 1600mhz would work though, at least some websites say so

    i went to newegg as soon as you mentioned it, that's the one i was looking at. i think thats gonna be the one then, pretty good price too (compared to where i live in canada)

    1600mhz will only work with the 2.2+ quad i7's


    i went with the corsair 1066 version for my mid-2010 (as it was the cheapest when I ordered), and it's working great.
