I used the same Kingston 8GB Ram Upgrade for my MacBook Pro and I’m thrilled with the results. If you’re a power user I would highly recommend 8GB of RAM, but it’s easy to check if your Mac needs a memory upgrade.
I wonder how I could take advantage of an SSD if I already have one in my laptop. Its a good deal so it makes me wonder. Anyhow..
I got the RAM but it seems like it kills my battery faster. Not sure if anybody else is having that same issue. If so let me know.

use Carbon Copy Cloner to duplicate your drive
I got the exact same SSD kit from Newegg not so cheap though! It’s a good little drive, not the fastest but way better than the stock HDD. Runs a little warm but no biggy.
Also note that the external hard drive case and cable may look different than the one pictured.
Also I don’t think the drive cloning software works for Mac, but it’s useful to have anyway.
