    Honestly? If you're that paranoid, then you shouldn't have brought it to the shop. And if you really don't want to open it up and check (which isn't all that hard), then you really don't want to know. I suggest you read the instructions that came with your MacBook regarding RAM upgrades so that you can open it up to take a look.

    This doesn't happen to be the same one you were using in a steamroom does it?

    Or are you just jerking our chain in both of them?

    And just out of curiosity, with grammar and spelling like that, how in the world did ya get in that college?

    How are you going to even know if it is the same memory that was in there before. If you don't want to open it now I'm guessing you never have before. Thus you don't know what the original memory looked like anyways.
