OWC 17-inch MBP RAM

Other World Computing has released two new memory upgrades for Apple's 17-inch unibody MacBook Pro, the 8GB DDR3 Memory Upgrade Kit and the 4GB DDR3 Memory Upgrade Kit. Said to be offered at a cost lower than factory-installed upgrades, the 8GB kit consists of two matched 4GB memory modules; the 4GB option consists of a single module. In addition, both modules are RoHS compliant and come with a lifetime replacement warranty.

To help users install the upgrades, OWC is offering a free online instructional video guiding people through a 15-minute process. Other kits offered by OWC include a 6GB upgrade for previous MacBook and MacBook Pro systems, and anywhere between 16MB and 32GB for a host of Apple computers.

Both of the new memory upgrades can be purchased from the OWC website, at a cost of $700 for 8GB or $360 for 4GB.
