Summary: Purchased 2 x 8G sticks (the 16G kit) in May'14. Put both sticks into my 2011 MB pro -- way cheaper than replacing the laptop. Things were great for 6 months. Started getting memory errors in one of the 8G sticks by November. (Started getting very random core dumps from Chrome / iPhoto / etc.).
Successfully upgraded a mid-2012 MacBook Pro (despite system's claimed 8GB limit)

Summary: As with other reviewers, we found that this works well in a mide-2012 MacBook Pro (MBP) despite Apple's claim that this system has a max configuration of 8GB (4GBx2). After install, power up was a tad slower than normal but we attributed this to the Mac recognizing the new memory configuration.
Summary: Purchased this for my MacBook Pro. I would have to say that if you are doing any substantial work with your laptop (or desktop for that matter), it is highly recommended to upgrade your laptop if it is carrying only 4 GB of RAM - which is what most Apple computers have installed by default.
Summary: Early 2011 Macbook Pro 13" here. Paying 169.99 for it seemed a lot for 2 little chips, but then when I started using my computer again (mainly for surfing/studying/safari using) the difference is night and day. Get this if you need to add life to your beloved macbook pro. You will not regret it.
Summary: When it came to upgrading my early 2011 13" MacBook Pro (2.3Ghz Intel Core i5), I was trying to decide whether to upgrade to 8GB or 16GB of RAM. Apple officially says my model MacBook Pro supports up to 8GB. However, it is confirmed by many, including Corsair and Crucial, that it will accept 16GB.
Summary: I went by the ratings already found under this product, and everything worked out great -- my computer is much snappier, and the RAM is still going strong. Specs, copied directly from "About this Mac": 21.5-inch iMac, Mid 2011 Processor - 2.5 Ghz Intel Core i5 Memory - 20 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 Graphics -...
Summary: I upgraded my Late 2011 Macbook Pro 13" with 4GB of memory to 16GB and wow is it fast! It's much more responsive and I have yet to get the infamous "beachball". The sticks can be a pain to take out and put in the computer for a person who's never done it before but the upgrade is simple.
Summary: I bought my MacBook new 18 months ago after ANOTHER and the final disaster with my Windows laptop. The Apple site says my particular MacBook will recognize and talk to 8 gigs of RAM. I learned from the Crucial site that my MacBook was capable of utilizing 16 gig!
