    Would it be possible to run 16gb ram on a Mid 2009 17" MBP C2D. This machine has a limit of 8gb. Is there a work around?

    Thanks.

    The internet says no.

    "2 GB (two 1 GB) or 4 GB (two 2 GB)
    Expandable to 8 GB
    "

    Unless you replace the CPU and logic board, nay (in which if you did you then have a completely different MBP). :(
