    I have a 15in MBP with the following specs:
    Processor: 2.66GHz Core i7 (620M)
    Codename: Arrandale
    Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M (256MB) + Intel HD Graphics (256MB)
    Model Number: A1286
    Sales Number(s): MC373LL/A
    Machine Number(s): MacBookPro6,2

    I replaced the memory to 8GB, now i'm greedy and want 16. Is this possible? What will happen if I do it?

    thanks!!!

    This is what is officially supported.

    And on Crucial:

    Your MacBook Pro 2.66GHz Intel Core i7 (15-inch DDR3) MC373LL/A System Specs
    System specs as shipped by the manufacturer.
    Scan your system to view your specific system configuration.

    Memory:
    DDR3 PC3-8500
    Memory Type: DDR3 PC3-8500, DDR3 (non-ECC)
    Maximum Memory: 8GB
    Slots: 2
    Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.
    Memory or DRAM is the "working" memory of the computer. It's used to store data for programs (sequences of instructions) on a temporary basis.
