Mushkin Enhanced 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Dual Channel Kit Memory For Apple Model 976643A
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Installed the RAM and the computer is good to go. There is a significant difference in performance. The factory Macbook came with 2x1GB and this upgrade doubled the RAM.

Cons: I'm concerned that this RAM hardware isn't going to be manufactured anymore. At the Apple store, I was told that they were soon going to stop supporting late 2000 Macbooks (2008, 09, etc.). So, get this RAM while you can if you're still using a late 2000's model Macbook!

Other Thoughts: RE Installation: I followed the instructions on Apple's website and it was just that easy. At first I thought I hadn't "popped" in the first chip in correctly, but it set and snapped in correctly. The second chip was even easier to pop and set in. Only thing to be concerned about it is the static electricity you might zap your comp and RAM. Also, I used the smallest Phillips screwdriver head I had and didn't use a magnetic electronic-sized Phillips head; it worked just fine.

SteelSeries 64225 6Gv2 Keyboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs purchased for iMac 06/09/2011

This review is from: SteelSeries 64225 6Gv2 Keyboard

Pros: Where do I begin...? I'll just tell you that if it didn't work on my 2004 iMac, which it does, I'd be building a system for it. So I'm lucky in that it works, but I just need to tell you that after I tested this keyboard out at a major electronics store; I felt like I had seen the face of the patron saint for gamers.

Cons: None at all.

However, using the keyboard with an Apple computer:

It does need to be mentioned that the "Steelseries" button is not compatible with the Mac's "Apple" button.

The keyboard setup prompt may not recognize the keyboard, so just continue and click on the US Standard keyboard option.

Steelseries offers no drivers etc. for this keyboard operating on Apple systems but it works on my 2004 iMac so it should be compatible with more current systems.

Other Thoughts: After getting my group wiped in World of Warcraft, yes I am a tankn noob, I realized that this keyboard has a learning curve. The fact is, this keyboard is a break-up from that soft-gel feely touchy keyboard to a mechanical one.

I'd like to compare it to this: you trade in your compact commuter car that's missing a front headlight etc. for that brand new high-end factory-built sportscar of your dreams.

varoom...

Consider buying this keyboard a serious upgrade to your gaming experience.

Mushkin Enhanced 1GB DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Memory for Apple Notebook Model 971504A
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It works! I was very worried about this RAM not being compatible with my Mom's Apple iMac:

"About This Mac"
Mac OS X
Version 10.4.11
Processor 1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo
Memory 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM

on the Apple website the iMac model is a 2006 something in where I found out the iMac uses notebook RAM (lolz....)

Cons: No Cons because the hardware works. I was once again really worried that it wouldn't work. But, after reading these reviews, I confidently picked up the RAM, installed, and piece of cake. Immediate recognition.

Other Thoughts: Well, the factory issue from 2006 gives the iMac one stick of 512 MB ram, so, putting 2 sticks of these 1GB'rs basically gives you quadruple the capacity.

Just a note: I play WoW (yes, I admit it), and had to get rid of my previous PC. So, using the iMac as an alternative to dropping $1,200 for a new awesome build, I dropped $42.00 for this RAM upgrade. I came back to WoW on the Trial and had a Blizz call out that I may not have enough RAM to play; did it anywayz but was lagg'n out major in SW and Ogrimar. Popped this RAM in and I now can play in Azeroth without the serious choppiness (flying griff or bat to major city) lag. In terms of graphis processing, it's another story. Night Elf king was kitted into Ogr and it was a little choppy, but that's because there were 50+ toons pwning the beast AND, the iMac has a ATI Radeon x1600 GPU.

Dungeon que just came up...gotta roll ;-D
