    Hi, I recently bought G.Skill SO-DIMM F3-10666CL9D-16GBSQ
    2 X 8GB for my macbook pro
    my macbook pro was bought in may 2010 and the details i have for my macbook are below..

    Hardware Overview:

    Model Name: MacBook Pro

    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz
    Number Of Processors: 1

    MACs are very sensitive to DRAM, make sure you have the latest firmware/BIOS, then try each stick by itself and see if that works. If both work individually then try them again together. Also check in the BIOS for any odd settings that are changeable.....If no luck, let me know and I'll drop GSkill Tech a note, maybe they can take a look Fri

    Pls offer comments on support I provide, HERE, in order to help me do a better job here:
