    Ram for 2011 Macbook Pro

    Looking to upgrade the RAM in my 13in 2011 Macbook Pro from 4gb to 8gb.

    According to support.apple.com/en-us/HT201165 I need 2x4gb 1.18inch 204-pin PC3-10600 DDR3 1333 MHz type RAM.

    Here's my question. The 1333MHz is confusing me because often I see 1333MT/s. I read online that these aren't necessarily equivalent. Can you tell me if this Crucial RAM will work vs the apple-sold brand on amazon? I tried Googling but didn't really become confident in my choice.



    Here is the Crucial RAM that I want on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Crucial-PC3-10...N1741WFAX34G6C

    Here is the associated Apple RAM on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Apple-Memory-M...3+MHz+type+RAM



    Thank you

    Any DDR3 laptop ram will work that's 1333Mhz or higher. No need to bang your head against a wall.

    what he said.

    As long as they are laptop sized DIMMs, you're good. Itll support up to 16GB, btw, even though Apple doesn't say it does. Given the rock bottom prices on RAM right now, might want to consider just maxing her out.

    Will http://www.amazon.com/Crucial-PC3-10...NH75JCVYV5HP5X work in that case? DDR3L

    Edit: Ended up buying this set, as it should work based on your comments. I really appreciate the help!
