Kingston's HyperX Plug-and-Play (PnP) is designed to improve the performance of your Sandy Bridge notebook or DIY system. Increase speed without changing system settings — PnP is preset for maximum speeds and easy to install. It's compatible with Generation 2 Core i5 and i7 and also with the latest Intel Sandy Bridge P67 and Z68 chipset. Plus it's backwards compatible without the plug-and-play functionality.
Pros: RELIABLE, Kingston memory has always proven itself from other manufactures. I can play Dead Space 2, Far Cry 2, Red Faction, and Need For Speed. Now this is not all high quality but some of these games I can play in HD, (720) which is not bad at all for INTEL graphics, I would say. I would have to say the ram is perfect for the performance it gives! NOTE not all Core I5 and I7 has the same GPU base and over clock speed. My core I5 had the Fasted GPU when in turbo boost. The fastest I7 that I saw had a 1.4 Ghz gpu when in turbo boost, mine is 1.3 ghz...... So stating this it will vary depending what model I5 or I7 processor you have. However I would still recommend this upgrade. Also i would recommend a SSH drive from seagate, I love mine not to mention for the price VS. Performance i'm happy :)
Other Thoughts: If you are deciding not to play games with this ram, and just want increased speed for applications, just get the 1600 mhz ram. Not really a big difference, can save you a few bucks.

Perfect with MBP 2011 13"
Pros: 1. Fast memory
Cons: 1. A bit more expensive than other ram, though if you're using integrated graphics (Intel HD 3000) then you definitely want this memory.
Other Thoughts: It's pretty.
