    It should work. The 2011 MBP is PC3 10600 and DDR3 is backwards compatible so the the 10666 should work (although, it will be clocked at 10600). If you can find it though, I'd stick w/the 10600 myself.

    That will be fine. Don't worry about 10666 vs 10600, 10600 is the official naming convention but some manufactures use 10666 to make themselves seem faster/better. As long as the frequency (1333MHz) and timing (CL9) are the same the memory will run at the same speed as 10600.

    Current newegg deal right, great price for 8GB :)
