    DDR3 PC3-12800,1600MHz Ram Compatible with Mid 2009 Macbook Pro5,5?
    I've been trying to research this myself all morning, but i haven't really found a conclusive answer

    Will a 2x4GB - DDR3 PC3-12800,1600MHz Ram upgrade be compatible with a Mid 2009 Macbook Pro5,5?

    Any help would be appreciated

    iMac i5 2.7GHz, 16GB memory, OS 10.11.1.
    Your MBP can handle up to 8GB of PC3-8500 memory of 1066MHz speed. The memory may work but not at the faster speed. Will be throttled back to bus speed of 1066MHz so if you have to purchase memory get what is recommended. OWC and Crucial are strongly supported here.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
