This is why matching pairs is better.

I seem to remember (in the past)...that matched pairs of ram did have a "user-noticable" improvement in performance. With newer Mac models being so fast...the difference between matched pairs & non-matched pairs may not be as "user-noticable" to the average user doing common everyday computing tasks. But this difference may still be measureable on a computer benchmark test.

To someone who is doing really large graphics or video projects (that may take hours & hours to render)...this difference may be more noticable/measurable in real time...and thus much more important.
