Pros: Plug in play - easy to install.
Cons: Chip may be discontinued as Macbooks from 2009/10 are no longer being supported by Apple soon (from 2015 Apple Store visit and talk with representative).
Other Thoughts: This was an upgrade from the original install of 2 x 512 MB chips, noticeable difference in performance.
Definitely recommend to do this upgrade while the chip is still available.
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.READ FULL REVIEW
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.
Consider buying this keyboard a serious upgrade to your gaming experience.
