    Memory prices seem to go up and down like the price of oil. But buying the cheapest isn't always the best move. I researched Crucial and other brands of memory to work in my new Mac Mini. After enough testimonials, I chose Crucial. It was one third of the price Apple wanted (for a factory upgrade when buying new), and the reviews noted few complaints when installing in the sometimes quirky Mac machines. So far I am happy. A word of caution though: Re-installing the chipset in the Mac is trickier than it looks. You must take care to angle the modules up higher than you think is necessary. And then push in until it seats with a click. Otherwise, the machine won't boot.

    I upgraded from 2x 1GB memory cards to 2 of these 4GB SO-DIMM RAM cards. I think that AVID is loading a tad faster, but I don't feel like much else is noticeably smoother in the operation of my MacBook Pro. I would have thought that an upgrade from 2GB to 8GB of RAM would have resulted in a more marked difference.

      Comments about Crucial 4GB SO-DIMM Memory for Notebook:

      I had 2 2gb sticks in my 09 MacBook Pro and because I constantly run multiple creative suite programs it wouyld often slow things down. Now I've been able to run at least three programs at once, like photoshop, illustrator and in design, plus safari keynote etc and I've noticed no lack of performance. The upgrade to two 4gb sticks really has made a difference.

                  I purchased these to replace and max out the RAM in my iMac. It works great, very easy to do, and is SO much cheaper than buying additional RAM from Apple when you buy your computer.

                    It made a huge difference to paging and general speed.

                    Used in conjunction with an solid state drive to increase the overall speed of my computer.

                      Used to replace the existing 4 gigs(2x2) of memory within Mid 2010 Mackbook Pro - mc374ll/A with 8gigs (4x2)
                      Replacement was easy and the RAM works great. A real boost going from 4 to 8gig when working on large photoshop files.

                        I actually purchased this for my imac, late 2009 build because they are cross compatible memory. Be sure to check with the Excellent help from B&H and make sure you are buying the right memory for your year and make of your machine. Otherwise, it is super simple to install. It took all of about 10 minutes and now my machine has 16 gigs of memory ( I bought 4)... Yes! and at a great price, what more can you ask for. and now I am ready just after a few months to buy some more Crucial memory from my great Friends here at B&H and get a rocking machine...

                          I had no problem at all, they are up and running since 60 minutes before I received them.

                            These seem to be the cheapest acceptable RAM for iMAC available, I installed them, my iMAC recognized them right afterwards and it just seems like multitasking is more fluid and everything runs overall a bit faster. I went from 4 gb RAM to 12 gb RAM I thought it was gonna be a ridiculous difference considering the it's 3 times the amount, but it's just significantly smoother and faster, well worth buying 2 of these for around 50 bucks.

                                    This memory chip easily installed in my Toshiba laptop and doubled the installed memory in the machine. Programs do seem to respond faster. It was a really easy install.

                                            This memory was purchased for a Toshiba Satellite a665 series. I did two 4gb to upgrade my 2gbs. System is running faster, but I haven't really run much of my graphics programs yet, but games are faster.
