    Even though a PC was tested, a MacBook or MacBook Pro should hold 6GB of RAM; they share the same chipset, so why not? Unless Apple put an arbitrary limit in the EFI :rolleyes: (I think Apple limited the amount of RAM in a Core Duo 'book to 2GB when it could support 4GB)

    This should be pretty awesome for current Pro users who need more than 4GB RAM for PS and other memory-hogging apps.

    And for those interested, here's the least expensive 4GB module on Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231202

    We already have a user with 6GB of RAM. Seriously so what?

    I'm using 6GB on a Santa Rosa chipset with a Penryn processor. :rolleyes:
