Buying this memory saved me from purchasing a new Mac Laptop. Easy install, no errors. Great

Summary: We've had a Macbook Pro 2.66 with Intel Core 2 Duo 2009 build for a while. We've been having sluggish performance while having a couple of applications open and browsing with more than a couple of tabs. So I thought it's time to upgrade. Meanwhile, we added Adobe Creative Cloud apps. Flash, Photoshop, AI, etc. Yes you would be correct in thinking we must be crazy, but why not. Let's max this puppy out an see what happens.
Summary: I purchased this 8gb kit for my late 2008 unibody Macbook that I had essentially given up on due to its immensely slowed performance over the past 2-3 years. After doing some research and finding some people were having success in speeding up their macs with ram swaps and upgrading to Yosemite, I figured why not give it the old college try. Install took me 15 minutes (the little screws were the toughest part; buy a glasses repair kit!

Summary: woohoo! Upgraded my late 2008 aluminum unibody Macbook (the first iteration of this 13 inch laptop) from 2GB to 8GB RAM using these sticks. One of my original 1GB sticks had gone bad and had rendered my laptop useless and dead, essentially. I can't remember all of the symptoms, but my browser would constantly crash while I was on the internet and I think the screen would suddenly go grey and unresponsive.
Good upgrade to stay off from shelling $1300 or more ...

Summary: Computer runs smooth. Shipment was fast. Good upgrade to stay off from shelling $1300 or more on a new computer for the next 3-4 years. All my software runs smoother. I use my laptop to run music software, office software, internet, etc. and everything works like charm. The booting up seems the same. But opening apps seem a bit faster and way smoother. Don't know if there would be a big difference between 4 or 8 gb, but the price differential is not a big deal.
Had a problem but recieved GREAT customer service from Micron

Summary: This product is great and I would usually trust it 100%, (considering, it is the same company that supplies stock RAM for Macs) but, I installed the sticks in my computer and started having crashes which included shutdown randomly and after being put to sleep, the computer would turn off and have to be rebooted.
Summary: I have a mid 2010 MBP with 4g memory, my system always seemed to run slow so I decided to pick up this 8g upgrade. Installed easy enough and made and immediate performance increase. My system isn't super fast or anything but it is quicker. I have had no problems with the upgrade. Get it, its worth the money.
Summary: A friend of mine gave me a 2009 Mac Mini because the optical drive didn't work. Since I have to open the Mini to work on the optical drive, I decided to upgrade the RAM and replace the HD to SSD. I bought this to upgrade the RAM from 4 to 8GB. I originally bought the PNY 8GB kit from Best Buy. The package stated that it is backward compatible, it isn't. The Mac Mini kept on shutting down when I stream videos such as XBMC or Youtube.
