worked seamlessly, easy to install.
I use my MacBook Pro for everyday stuff, browsing the web, watching videos, listening to music and the occasional iMovie use. I don't do any recording or photo editing so it wasn't necessary for me to have 16GB of ram. However, the stock 4GB of ram was just not cutting it, so I decided to move to 8GB. After installing the memory I noticed the startup time was still the same around 90 seconds, but the main difference was how snappy the computer became. I can now open applications much faster and close them faster, the computer is much snappier now.
This made a world of difference and was incredibly easy to install. I would highly recommend this to everyone with a Mac. I can open Photoshop, iMovie, Word, and Excel at the same time without anything crashing! It's a miracle!
Computer wouldn't boot with the new RAM, had to reinstall factory RAM to get it to work.
