I upgraded my aluminium macbook late 2008 with this RAM. Passed from 4 to 8GB. And for the ones who had any doubt... yes, it works, and the performance boost is amazing, especially using lots of heavy apps.

Used the iFixit guide for MacBook Pro, installed as directed, everything works as advertised -- no glitches, no problems with 'non-Apple' memory. Good service, shipping as promised and on time. Recommend dealer.

Was looking to upgrade my Macbook Pro 13 (Mid 2010) from 4gb to 8gb. First, I ordered a cheaper 8GB kit from a different brand. At first seemed ok. But running prime95 (ram/cpu stress application) would detect errors after only a few seconds.
I've returned that kit, and ordered this one, which seems fine so far. I left prime95 running for 2 hours, and no problem so far.

Bought the kingston kit looking for a cheaper deal than others on the market. Arrived in excellent condition and very quickly, along with the precision screwdriver kit also ordered. Installation was quick and simple, and despite warnings that the kit may not be compatible, it works perfectly, and is running as I type this. Packaging was excellent and looked fairly secure, also came with brief installation guide, with further links.
Small changes in performance so far, however, have yet to install heavier music applications (Logic, Sibelius etc) to see any big advantages.

Would definitely recommend the product, but as with any memory installation, requires patience and a precision screwdriver set.

[EDIT] On further testing and software installation I was very impressed at how smooth the above applications worked running next to each other and am glad I bought the upgraded RAM. Would've definitely expected much slower performance without it. [/EDIT]

Installed on: 13" Macbook Pro (early 2011)

I was unsure whether to buy this or not for my late 2009 unibody Macbook as many of the reviews said that they use a macbook pro, and the 'maximum' ram for my macbook is 4GB. However it worked just fine and my macbook is running much smoother now :) So if you have a late 2009 Macbook. IT WILL WORK. Although be careful when removing the base of the laptop as I almost ripped off the rubber sealing and I spent ages fixing it afterwards.

Upgraded my macbook alu (late 2008) from 2GB of RAM, and everything went fine. Just 15 min for opening, removing the old modules, and plugin the new ones. Just make sure you read some instructions of how to do it, if you have never done it before.
The performance boost was incredible, at least for a user like me that abuses of multitasking.
Overall, it was the best electronic purchase I did in the last 2 years. Highly recommended!

This works fine on my 15" late 2008 Core2Duo Macbook Pro, the one that was supposed to be limited to 4GB of RAM. I bought this kit because I didn't want have to deal with incompatibilities on what is an unsupported setup. Note that if you have a similar laptop you may need to install the most recent EFI update to enable 8 GB.

When I bought my MacBook in early 2009 (late 2008 model - first aluminium unibody version) the maximum amount of RAM it could support was 4GB which was what I ordered it with, however when Apple upgraded the designation of the 13" Aluminium MacBook to MacBook pro status, they also quietly released a firmware update which enabled existing ones to be able to use 8GB. This Kingston kit works perfectly in my MacBook. I can now run my Adobe CS4 apps & parallels concurrently without getting the incessant spinning beachball.
