Rating: 5/5 OWC tech specs spot on! January 26, 2016 I was handed down my daughters old MacBook (last of the white plastic models) when she upgraded. It was slow and bloated. At OWC I found that they had tested this model and found that it would handle 16GB of RAM in spite of the Apple spec sheet. Trusting OWC I bought 16GB along with a 480GB solid state HD. The install of the RAM and HD was very simple and with their tutorials I would say most anyone could do it. Also installed El Capitan and WOW, I've got a rocket of a laptop. Total cost, about $300. And to think we were going to trash the old MacBook! Thanks OWC for the spec info that got this process started and the solid products I was able to purchase on your site (and the speedy delivery). Keep up the great work.

Rating: 5/5 max memory for my trusted 2010 Macbook Pro 13" December 17, 2015 After conflicting information as to whether or not the laptop could recognize 16 GB memory, I installed it (made easier as always by the great "how-to" videos that OWC provides) and the computer's performance is now amazing to me compared to how it behaved with the 8 GB previously used. Apps start up almost instantly, the operating temps are lower, previously crashy apps like some third party photo processing filters now run rock-solid. I'm an old-school fan, still running 10.8.5 on this machine, but now can do all I want to do with it without getting bogged down. It's like swapping a V-8 engine into the space that held a V-6. Highly recommended for anyone who loves their middle-aged laptops and wants to rejuvenate them as long as possible.

Rating: 5/5 ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM December 4, 2015 Was very impressed with the quick delivery. The memory has really helped speed up my MacBook response time. The installation was so simple, that anyone could do it. Would recommend buying the tool kit from MacSales also if you are new at the upgrade process.

Rating: 5/5 Extra memory and an SSD gives new life to older Macs November 7, 2015 I’ve used OWC memory for dog years to improve performance on my aging Macs. Now that their SSD prices have come down, adding memory and an SSD make a really big difference. This was for an old 7,1 Macbook. Ugly as a fence post but makes a great traveling machine. Installation of disk and memory on a Macbook is a cinch.

Rating: 5/5 Excellent RAM November 4, 2015 I purchased this 16 GB of RAM for my MacBook 7.1 and it's great! My laptop is so much faster now with every function. I watched the OWC video first; the installation was super easy, and took me all of 10 minutes to complete. If your laptop can handle 16 GB of RAM just do it and you'll be amazed at the improvement.
