Hii.


I've read about that they officially support 8GB, has any real person had one with 16GB working? I don't see why they won't support 16GB,

Anyone?

They do support 16GB. You can find specs on all Apple products, including maximum RAM:

is there an overly huge difference going from 8-16gb?


Well,simply put - i want a macbook with OSX, and i want to be able to continue my Windows 7 stuff etc, which requires a lot of RAM for what i do, loads of virtualization etc.

Although i may run Parallels hmm. nested VM's etc.

Got it. I had 16GB on my Asus G74 and it flew. I could totally tell a difference. But since I'm a new Mac user now, I don't really know how stuff compares. I did notice throwing a SSD in my MBP as apose to my Asus, was way faster
