Is the memory compatible for use in the mid-2009 aluminum unibody MBP?


The specification is compatible, but from my research, there are at least two conflicting user reviews on this matter:

  • Amazon product page, which said that it is compatible, but failed after five months.
  • newegg product page which says that it is not compatible, however it does not specify the MBP in detail.

Sorry I can't provide links for newegg & amazon page, don't have enough rep.

Thanks in advance.

For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

probably too late (should have posted this at the time), but see for more general tips on memory compatibility. – Robert S Ciaccio Dec 14 '10 at 18:30
