    been looking at a lot of ram lately and i read some feedback on this one (some negative some positive) a couple said it worked for the new MBP's (2011's) and some said it doesnt.

    Don't click me, go to the link on the 3rd post

    If anyone has the same set up of newest MBP's and is using similar ram let me know. also if anyone has suggestions, i want the best not worried about price and no more than 8gb. thanks!

    also something that will it work when i install lion

    I think that 1866 is really hit or miss with what happens, while the 1600 is flawless.
