    Smile Upgrading my Mac Book Pro 15 2011 to 8GB RAM
    I need some advice to upgrade the RAM memory of my MBP? I want to upgrade my MBP 2011 from 4GB RAM to 8GB. I find on web this brands:
    Ramjet: Mac Memory and Hard Drives: 8GB DDR3-1066 Kit for MacBook Pro - Ramjet, Inc.
    Crucial: 8GB Kit (4GBx2), 204-pin SODIMM, DDR3 PC3-10600 upgrades for Apple MacBook Pro (15-inch, Early 2011) Laptop/Notebook, CT1898876 from

    any of these will work good on MBP? does anyone knows if these are mac certified? are these good quality brands?
    I'll appreciate any help

    Texas, where else?
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '11 1.8 i7 4GB 10.10; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.10; 5s & 5c
    Crucial has been the go to company for Mac RAM for awhile.

    I might pay the extra $8 to OWC instead of Crucial just because of what I've heard of their customer support.

    Wouldn't give that other company $30-40 more money - no way - no how.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

    I bought the ram for my MBP from OWC. Good service, quick delivery and the ram has worked perfectly. I've had it in my system for 5 or 6 weeks now. I agree with bobtomay's assessment of the choices.


    15 " 2013 MBP OS X Ver. 10.9.1 16 GB Memory, 500 GB SSD, Retina, 2.3 Ghz I7, 30GB IPhone 5, 2012 Mini Cooper JCW Coupe, 2014 Toyota Corolla, 2007 Trailblazer, 2 RC Planes, 1 fantastic wife who puts up with my toys. Still Married After 30 Years.
