[NCIX] NCIX Patriot 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1333MHz SODIMM (laptop ram) - $49.99

Hey guys,

Spent a couple of hours shopping around for RAM and this seemed to be a fairly good deal, especially for those who have an i5 laptop and max out at 1333 mhz. It has pretty good reviews on newegg. Note however that I vaguely recall someone mentioning that it was meant for 2nd generation intel laptops in the documentation. So AMD users be cautious.

Patriot Signature PSD316G1333SK 16GB 2X8GB DDR3 1333MHz CL9 PC3-10600 204-PIN 1.5V SODIMM Memory

Looks like a good deal to me. I'd jump on it if it were 1600mhz but this is perfect for 98% of users.

I have a 2008 MacBook Pro Core2Duo (5,5) that I would like to breathe new life into...currently it only has an abysmal 2GB Ram. How would I know if this would work in there? I'm confused with all the voltages and speeds and such, and whether it's compatible with old school MacBook Pros.

Looks like your model of Macbook Pro can only handle a maximum of 8 GB of RAM (4*4). In addition to that, it looks like it needs DDR3-1066. Not sure how well DDR3-1333 would work it (or how backwards-compatible it is with your laptop).

Edit: If your Macbook Pro only has 2 GB of RAM, you could order the 4*4 kit from OWC ($52.99). It's highly unlikely you will get charged HST or Duties / Custom Brokerage Fees.
