            Upgrading my Macbook from Snow Leopard to Lion was, overall, an improvement. But it needed more memory. Sort of like going from Windows XP to Windows 7. You need more memory to support the features.

                                I upgraded my Macbook from 2GB to 4GB memory. Before the upgrade, I would experience my Mac bogging down when I had multiple application opened at once. I primarily use my Macbook for college work, photo editing, and video editing. When I would have all the applications opened plus surfing the internet, things got slow. In addition to all this, I needed to run Windows on Parallels Desktop virtual machine for my college classes. After the upgrade everything ran smoother with no glitches. I'm very pleased with the results!

                                    I'm an IT professional/programmer and purchased this memory kit to upgrade the RAM capacity of my mid-2010 white Macbook. The standard model of this computer carries only 2 GB, and it's physically installed as a matched pair (occupying both available RAM slots), so you must replace all of the existing RAM in order to upgrade the computer's capacity. I've long used Crucial/Micron memory modules in my desktop PC builds, which gave me a bit of extra confidence in choosing this particular product for my laptop.

                                    Apple's hardware is now Intel based, but does tend to have more proprietary characteristics than other manufacturers, so third party hardware upgrades (including--and perhaps especially--memory) can occasionally be troublesome. I'm pleased to report that this isn't the case with this memory kit, and both the physical install and post-install operation have gone smoothly. If my experiences are any indication, this kit should work nicely in any late 2009 or mid 2010 Macbook at a significantly lower price point than the officially sanctioned Apple upgrade.

                                    Because it does precisely what it's supposed to do (I can actually run virtual machines/Parallels now), and hasn't given me any trouble whatsoever, I'm giving it the best possible rating.

                                      It's RAM...

                                      Not particularly exciting but it fit my iMac and was less than half the cost of memory from Apple. There were no installation instructions with the kit but I think Crucial has instruction on their site.
