    Correct RAM for 2011 MacBook Pro 15"

    I'm so out of touch with RAM. This looks like the correct model to me, anyone agree?

    I'm in serious need of an upgrade to 16GB due to VM use.

    It doesn't say anything about MAC compatibility. I know you're not in the US, but newegg actually has a MAC memory section, this is where I got the upgrade for my 2011 15" MBP. Gives you a place to start with model numbers at least.
