Memory comes in two different form factors the Corsair Vengeance 16Gb 1866MHz Ram is intended for desktop systems not for a laptop.

You need DDR3 (Double Data Rate -3) SO-DIMM (Small Outline Dual Inline Memory Module) which Corsair does not sell (per their lookup tool).

Hi Dan,

thanks for the answer. I'm sorry that I didn't write my question more detailed. I know that Laptops need DDR3 SO-DIMM Memory. And Corsair sells memory of the typ I named for notebooks: CMSX16GX3M2A1866C10 RAMEXPERTS. I just wanted to know wether 1866MHz memory will work with my macbook pro. Normally it shouldn't be a problem, because series-7 chipsets of intel will support it. But I'd be happy if somebody has experience with this configuration.



At the time I did the lookup they didn't offer any SO-DIMM Vengeance series from what their web site stated. It appears they do now. Vengeance series
