    Do you think we will ever see 16gb sticks for the 2011-2012 15"macbook pros?Would they even be able to support 32gbs of memory?
    Thanks,

    Most definitely we will see them. I suppose when is anybody's guess, but I can't see it being longer than a year. Probably sooner, but who really knows.

    And everything I read says that they will support 32GB (it might just be the 2012's) but, then again, there's nothing to prove that now is there!

    Yeah soon enough.
    But when it comes out, it would be like 1500USD.
    Just wait another 5 years and would be down to like 40 bucks

    Yes, very likely. Just give it time. I remember buying new Dell laptops when the maximum RAM was 384MB. Someday you may look back on computers with RAM measured in GB as antiquated, with 1TB the minimum configuration.

    I just hope when it does that my late 2011 will support it.
    Mine still runs lightning fast but when I'm designing large billboard ads all the ram helps:)
