Title:

Will these ram work with my MacBook Pro?

Text:

Hey there!

So, i've had my Macbook Pro 15" for nearly a year now, and i would like to upgrade my RAM modules from 4 GB to 8 GB.

'''Macbook Pro specs:'''

Model Number: A1286

Processor: 2.53 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

HDD: 250 GB

RAM: 4 GB

Bought: January 2010.

The information that i found on Apples website about their RAM modules are the following:

1066 MHz

DDR 3

PC3 - 8500

SO - DIMMs

After searching Google, i found a pair of Corsair RAM modules, which would provide me with 2x4 GB RAM modules.

The specs are the exact same as the specs on the pair from Apples website, but the price i WAY different!

'''Link to Apple RAM modules:'''

I can save ALOT of money buying the Corsair RAM instead of the ones shown on Apple's website.

My question is simple:

Will they work with my Macbook Pro?

MacBook Pro 15" Unibody 2.53 GHz Mid 2009
