Could anybody tell me the difference between Memory for Mac and Laptops:
Here's and example:
Crucial 8GB Kit (2 x 4GB) DDR3L-1600 SODIMM Memory for Mac CT3373649 $85.99
Crucial 8GB Kit (2 x 4GB) DDR3L-1600 SODIMM CT3305341 $77.99

@mochica Thanks for contacting us today. These parts are very similar as far as specs go. However, CT3305341 is a high density part. It has 8 little black chips on the module. CT3373649 is low density part and has 16 little black chips on the board. The Apple RAM has a premium too, as it does go through more testing to ensure it is compatible with Mac systems. What system will you be putting these modules in? I can look up this memory and see if matters what the density is.

I'm planning to install it in a MBP mid 2012. It's an Intel plataform so I wonder how special this memory is...
As far of the number of chips, as long it meets the thickness there shouldn't be any problem.
Thanks YogiH for your reply
