It works perfectly and makes the netbook that bit quicker - more than enough to make the purchase worthwhile.
On a lot of netbooks 2GB is the maximum RAM they can address. Also there is normally only one RAM slot so if you want 2GB of RAM you need to buy a 2GB stick of RAM like this one. Obviously check what RAM spec you have / can use before buying! (Crucial themselves do a bit of free software for this)
Personally, besides the Usage Warnings disappearing I have noticed that the Backspace deleting key now operates much faster and smoother !!.
The Crucial website recommended a different part number for my macbook (crucial recommended CT898327, whereas the part number for these is CT25664BC1067).
However, when I checked the technical details for the two part numbers, I couldn't see any differences. So decided to give these a go, and they're working just fine!
So I finally decided to take the plunge and upgrade from 2Gb to 4Gb of memory. Like some of the other reviewers I checked the memory specs and these chips are not exactly the recommended part number - but match the spec in every other way. The difference may be the CL (CAS Latency?) which is CL7 for these chips - whereas the 'recommended' chips are CL5.
Anyway, I bought 2 x 2Gb DIMMs and I'm so glad I did. It was a five minute job to fit them, they work perfectly and the performance of my MacBook (running 10.7) is much improved - especially when I'm running Virtualbox, or when I'm running memory hungry apps like MS office for Mac. I think The chips I took out were CL9 or CL11- actually slower than these chips - so I don't think there is any down-side to using these parts.
It works perfectly, so I would recommend it to everybody who is looking for this kind of RAM.
