    Upgrade RAM Macbook late 2009
    Hi! I need your help I have to upgrade my ram, but I cannot tell the difference between these two options:

    http://www.amazon.it/Kingston-Techno...ref=pd_cp_pc_0
    and
    http://www.amazon.it/Transcend-JM106...d_sim_sbs_pc_1

    Are they compatible with my white macbook late 2009? Are kingston RAMs better than transcend ones?

    Thank you very much.

    Specs:
    2011 13" MBP 2.3ghz, 8gig ram, OS 10.7.5
    We usually recommend these two suppliers of ram. They make it easy to figure out what you need:

    - Performance Upgrades; FireWire USB SATA Storage; Memory, more at OWC
    - RAM Memory Upgrade: Dell, Mac, Apple, HP, Compaq. USB drives, SSD at Crucial.com

    Thank you very much Nick! I'm sorry but I'm from Italy and it would be cheaper and faster for me if I bought them from amazon.it
    Anyhow, I realized I made a mistake when I pasted the links. Please check out and tell me if those are compatible with my macbook.

    Thank you again

    Sorry...I didn't realize you were in Italy. I took a look at the links...but my Italian (language) is not so good! Sorry.

    What you can do is:

    - go to the links that I provided for OWC and Crucial
    - from each site identify what the correct ram is for your computer (each site has an easy system for this)
    - check out the specs for the ram
    - then compare this info to the ram that you identified from Amazon.com

    HTH,

    No problem at all! Thank you very much Nick! I just have some final questions.

    - Is there any difference among brands? I mean as long as they have the same characteristics (DDR3, pin, volt, timing etc) they are pretty much the same, are they not?
    - Are 4gb rams already obsolete? I don't use softwares that require a lot of ram.

    Thank you again

    I don't think so...or at least it's very hard to know. When I buy ram...I usually like to purchase it from a place that includes a lifetime warranty in case something goes wrong.

    How much total ram are you talking about upgrading to?

    - 8gig of ram (2 x 4gig)?
    - 4gig of ram (2 x 2gig)?
