View Full Version : Memory for "Apple MacBook Pro" ???

07-10-2006, 12:52 PM
My girlfriend is getting a new Apple MacBook Pro next month and I´m checking out her options.

First I see is that upgrading the memory from 512mb --> 2Gb is $500 Extra !!
On NewEgg I found similar memory for $160 (2Gb)
That´s saving me $340 :)

In similar I mean same size, speeds and voltages.
Here is the MAC memory (http://www.memoryx.net/ma346ga.html)
And here is a similar memory I found (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820145012).

What would you recomend?
Get the memory from Apple? or get it myself?

I did work in a computer shop last summer and some Apple people bought some Kingston DDR 400Mhz memory for their G5 desktops and SOME modules just didn´t work for those computers.
But now, these Apple laptops are more intel based... :confused:

get it yourself no question. It will be MUUUUUCH cheaper

and corsair is good and it uses Micron D9 fatbody for some reason ;) not that it will help in a mac laptop as to my knowledge you cant adjust the timings

Yeah it loooks like it will be much cheaper, but is there a certain type of PC2-5300 memory that works and not others?

Like I mentioned from last summer, the standard Kingston PC-3200 memory wasn´t working so the shop ordered some other Kingston type also PC-3200 that worked.

What I´m asking, WILL that Corsair memory work...100% ???
