Two Killer Upgrade Deals for MacBook Pro: Kingston 128GB SSD for $139 and 8GB RAM Upgrade for $79

Feb 8, 2011 - 5 Comments


If you’re looking for some good deals to upgrade your MacBook Pro, is offering two killer upgrades at great prices:

First up is the Kingston 128GB SSD V Series 2.5″ Hard Drive upgrade for $139.95 after a $75 mail in rebate. It’s actually part of a “notebook bundle” meaning it comes with an external drive caddy and USB cable to turn your existing 2.5″ internal hard drive into a portable external drive.

If you get the 128GB SSD drive, don’t forget the $75 mail in rebate (PDF). The SSD rebate offer and price are valid until 2/14/2011.


Next up is a Kingston Apple 8GB 1066MHz DDR3 RAM Upgrade, you’ll want to double-check that your machine handles the upgrade but it should be compatible with most new MacBook Pro’s, iMac, Mac Mini, and MacBook models.

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.

    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.
