    I looked up on the apple site:

    S0-DIMM
    1333 MHz DDR3 SD-RAM

    Is that all that matters? I'm going to look for a decent name brand, but I want to upgrade so I'm going to run to the store soon.

    Memory is memory, right? There's no Apple or PC only RAM?

    edit: and before I go - if someone sees this, does brand really matter all that much?

    All you need to know is PC3-10600 SO-DIMM. DIMM's are larger (for most desktops) and SO-DIMM's are smaller and so used for notebooks.

    As long as it's DDR3 and the PC3-# is no less than 10600, it will work fine.

    Excellent. Thank you.

    I ask in a rush because I want to just go to the computer store and get some, instead of ordering it :)
