    2011 Macbook Pro 13" hardware/repair question

    I recently got my macbook fixed by an apple certified dealer. My macbook originally comes with memory of 4 GB 1333 Mhz DDR3. On the repair sheet it says that they replaced my logic board and memory on unit with the following product SDRAM, 2GB, DDR3 SO-DIMM (product code 661-5860).

    My question therefore is, did I get cheated out by them taking out 4GB of memory and replacing it with 2GB? I just need to make sure before I call them and blame them for doing this.

    I posted this in the apple support page yesterday and no one has gotten back, I would really appreciate an answer asap so I can fix this problem before the apple dealer says its been too long.

    You can check how much RAM is actually installed by right-clicking to the Apple Icon in the top-left hand corner of the screen, selecting About This Mac, then clicking the More Info... button and selecting Memory. If this is less than the 4GB you had installed initially, then yes, you should go back and complain.

    Thank you, that helped! It says all my memory slots are in use.
    The only reason I was scared is because after I gave in my mac to the shop, someone told me that that place is horrible and I went online to look at some reviews and some people were saying how they found out later some pieces were missing from their macs.
    Thanks again!

    Are you sure, they did replace your logic board????

    Do you have your "original" serial number written down anywhere? See, if it matches with the one in "About this Mac" > "More info"
    If it matches, you got ripped off. Cant change the serial number....
