      I bought this ram to use in my 13" MacBook 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo. The installation was simple and took no more than 10 minutes thanks to the instructions on Apple's website. It allows my MacBook to perform much faster than before installation. I was able to get this ram on sale and it was less than half the price of buying ram from Apple. No problems yet so I fully recommend this product.

              This was exactly what I needed. I appreciate that it was easy to find and purchase. Best part was the customer service. I called and ordered it over the phone. I live in NYC so one hour later I went to the store to pick it up. It was waiting at the front of the store ready to be picked up. Super fast and easy. 5 Stars!

                Used the product to upgrade from 2GB to 4GB on a Macbook Pro (early 2008 model).

                Truly does wonders to the processing speed. My wife works on photoshop a lot for her work and this sped up all of those small lags that wasted hours in her day.

                      A friend suggested that I get this as an upgrade to the 1 GB that came with our Mac when I explained how slow it had been running. I immediately thought to check B&H for the best deal and best product since I have always been very satisfied with all of the products (3 TVs, a Bluray player, a desktop PC and printer, and a Home theater in a box system) and the service from B&H in the past. Amazing that such a simple thing can make such a difference! Like having a new computer!

                            I have been using the same Black MacBook for seven years. It started slowing down so I thought it was done for. Little did I know Alli I needed to do was boost the ram and the HD. It runs almost as fast as my brand new iMac!

                            I live in Boise, Idaho just down the street from Crucial. Ordering it through N&H was cheaper and easier than going straight to the store.

                            No problems with the ram at all!

                              Runs so much faster now, great product at an affordable price.

                                These memory modules worked perfectly in my 2007 15" Macbook Pro.
                                It only took a few moments to unscrew the base plate out of the computer, remove the old memory modules, drop these in and bolt the computer back up.
                                Both video editing and XCode programming run more smoothly on the machine now.
                                For as cheap as these modules are, it's a no-brainer to buy them. It was certainly cheaper than paying for a newer Macbook pro!

                                        Instant change in performance. I wanted to extend the life of my white iMac Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz and have with this "Crucial" purchase. All apps respond more fluidly. Most important, it materially changed the usability of the latest Adobe Lightroom 4 from crawl to now flowing. Would I like a new quad core iMac for this app? Sure. But I can now run a graphics intensive app such as Lightroom/Photoshop (and likely whatever your modern memory-hog app happens to be) with this upgrade for at least the time being.

                                        NOTE: Apple states that the Core 2 Duo only goes to 3GB RAM. Actually, it does recognize 4GB and will make use of all 4 in most cases. Therefore, esp. at these prices, definitely worth the full 4GB upgrade rather than trying to do a 2/1=3GB (which might cost you the same anyway).

                                          Installed this RAM kit into my macbook 4,1 to breathe a little life into the almost 4 year old notebook. Works wonders when multitasking, very straightforward to install.

                                          Props to B&H for still carrying this item, as it is difficult to find elsewhere, and generally more expensive.
