Will these two memory sticks work together ok in an Early-2011 MBP MC700LL/A?

    I have an old stick of memory that I ordered last year for my iMac, but then kept the stick when I returned it. I was wondering if I could use that stick (purchased directly from Crucial) along with this other one from Amazon.

    To me, specs all seem to match up...I just am a bit confused why direct from Crucial seems to have different part numbers for specific models (even though the RAM specs seem exactly the same).

    How much ram do you have now and in what configuration? I would recommend matching.

    I have the stock 2 x 2gb in the MBP. I think it's Hynix branded.

    Which one the "iMac" stick or the other one?
    They are both the exact same specs. It should work but if you just buy the one you have again you're on the safe side either way.

    Well, I got the one from Amazon and popped it into the MBP along with the older stick that was directly from Crucial. After an hour, no issues at all and all seems well!
