I recently bought the cheapest Macbook Pro 13" and would like to add some more memory. The plan is to put two 4GB blocks in to get 8GB in total. The manual tells me that the RAM should have the following specs:

PC3-8500 DDR3 1066 MHz Type RAM SO-DIMM 204-pin

Does this mean that all RAM blocks with these specs will work? Or should I choose RAM that has some kind of special Mac-firmware (although I am not sure RAM has firmware)? A friend of mine mentioned something about "KTA"... anyone who knows what that is and is it relevant?

Two good places to purchase ram from are:

- Crucial
- OWC

I know that you're in Denmark...but there are folks here on Mac-Forums that have ordered from "OWC" (from all over the world)..and have received great service.

If you order ram from either of these places...you will be sure to get ram that is compatible.

Yes, all RAM with those specs will work, there is no Mac specific firmware.
