    I have been running with this RAM in my MacBook Pro 17 (Summer 2009) for over 6 weeks. Not one lockup/freeze or problem of any kind. Programs are faster in general and I don’t worry about closing applications any more. Apple computers through the years have been extremely finicky about RAM quality. I can’t recommend these SO-DIMM’s high enough. I put my old factory 2GB sticks for the MacBook Pro 17 into my wife’s new MacBook 13. That worked perfectly..

    These two 4GB SO-DIMM sticks cost $1200 from Apple directly. Spoil yourself and don’t feel guilty about buying them here for much less — especially if you use Parallels Desktop, or VMWare. Kingston will back you up, Amazon will also.

    It works just fine in a Macbook Pro, January 6, 2011

    I have a brand new Macbook Pro 13″ with the 2.4ghz processor. I am running the Kingston 8GB kit with a G. Skill 120GB SSD, the computer screams and could only imagine if I opted for the 15″ with the i7 but the way I have it now my 13″ is too fast for what I need anyways. The ram got a 4 for ease of use because I had to reset my PRAM upon installation. The computer was slow at first, booted into the diagnostic tools, memory passed all diagnostic checks so just went wil simple troubleshooting steps by resetting the PRAM/NVRAM and the SMC for good measure. Computer booted up in less than 8 seconds and runs Logic Studio, Apurture Pro (while rendering) and designing scripts all at the same time with little to no lag.

    If you have a bad set of RAM don’t rate it a 0 unless you run a memory diagnostic, reset PRAM, and have confirmation that it is the ram. People switch back to their original apple ram and it runs fine because yeah, snow leopard pre-caches information. If you reset that pre-cache I beet most of these guys wouldn’t need a new set of ram.

    RESET PRAM (hold option + command + R + P and press the power button, let it go to the white screen and restart and et go of all the keys). Also go to apple.com/support not some cheesy Mac forum I troll those forums and people are idiots on most of them.

    I purchased a 2010 model mac mini with only 2GB memory knowing that eventually I would upgrade the memory. After about 6 months, I found the computer lagging when using iphoto, photoshop and powerpoint at the same time (which I do often). I looked into the memory upgrade. Apple wanted $600 for 8GB memory but I found these Kingstons for under $100 on Amazon. They arrived within a day, installed within 5 minutes and when I booted up my mac it immediately recognized the memory and had improved productivity. I now can work with all of my memory eating applications open without problem, and I’ve noticed great improvement in web surfing and just general use of the computer. I am VERY pleased!
