Working Great in mid 2012 MacBook Pro 13

by MacBook buyer on 8/23/2012

I have a Late 2011 MacBook Pro 2.5GHz, but ended up buying a second MacBook Pro 13" mid 2012 version. I like to upgrade the RAM myself to save a bundle over Apple's prices. Crucial is the retail memory for Micron, who supplies a lot of Apple's OEM memory, so I prefer to put in Crucial vs. other brands when possible, although I have used Corsair, Mushkin, G.Skill, and others with success in Macs. I liked this memory for my 2012 MacBook Pro because it is low voltage 1.35 1600 MHz memory, which is the preferred specs for the 2012 models. 1.5v should work, too, but I'll spend a little extra for this Micron memory to the exact specs that Apple suggests for the 2012 MacBook Pros. It works great. I would highly recommend it. When it comes down in price, it will really be a fantastic buy.

Compatibility for Mac systems.
Engineered to be compatible with your Apple® system, Crucial® Memory for Mac takes the guesswork out of a memory upgrade. Since Apple systems often have very specific memory requirements, including particular component densities, speeds, and SPD programming specifications, it's important to buy your memory from people who know Apple computers inside and out. With over a decade of experience manufacturing and developing memory for Apple systems, we make it easy to find memory that's been designed specifically for your system.

Reliability for Mac systems.
If you're an Apple computer user, you probably expect intuitive, reliable performance from your system. We think memory should work the same way, too. For each module we manufacture, we send it through a rigorous testing process to ensure that you're getting a reliable, high-performance memory solution. Every module that leaves our doors has been extensively tested at the component level for voltage and temperature resistances, signal integrity, and software compatibility. Even better, our modules are lead and halogen-free.* The result? Reliable memory that meets or exceeds Apple's own memory requirements.

With a tech-savvy team that's well-versed in Apple systems, we'll provide the technical support you need—no matter how old your Mac computer gets.
