        I bought this memory for the sole purpose of allowing me to upgrade my old MacBook Pro to 'Snow Leopard' operating system. The upgrade was successful. I have noticed no improvement in performance, but that was not my objective as I am not running processor/memory intensive applications.

        The ordering process was simple and delivery fast and efficient.

                    Comments about Crucial 2GB kit (1GBx2) Upgrade for a Apple MacBook Pro 1.83GHz Intel Core Duo (15.4-inch) System:

                    I was slightly worried about having to install the memory chips myself but looking back now I have no idea why. They simply slot into place and are good to go. The tutorials on your website were a great help and I also watched one on YouTube for a Mac laptop to ensure I was doing it correctly.

                    As my headline states it was 'Simple and Straight Forward' - and an effective addition to my laptop's performance.

                      I have now max'd out my MacBookPro but it was worth it. Even though the installation was relatively easy, the hardest part was getting the memory cover off the MacBookPro itself - You definitely need a Phillips 0 or 00 cross head screwdriver - well I did!
