I have MacBook Pro 15-inch, early-2011. I want to upgrade my RAM from 4 GB (2+2) to 6 GB (2+4). Can I use Kingston RAM (Kingston 4GB DDR3 1333 Bus SOD)? Or is there specific RAM made for Macs?

- Can i swap memory modules between mac
I upgraded the memory in my Early 2011 MacBook Pro from 4 GB (2x2) to 8 Gb (2x4) using the Crucial site, and haven't had any problems at all.
For the record, I also did the same with a brand new iMac, swapping out both memory modules with 2x4 GB from Crucial.
It worked out to be about 1/3 of the price that Apple charges for the same memory.
