    I guess this has been discussed before but it was news to me. It might be of some use to those who have one of the pre-unibody Macbook Pros, i.e. the early 2008 Macbook Pro.

    The official RAM limit is 4GB (so 2GB x 2 sticks.)

    Apparently you can throw 6GB in there are encounter no problems even under heavy load. So, a 4GB stick + 2GB stick.

    All in the information you need is here:

    Available from OWC. I already have 4GB so all I need is a 4GB module to use with the 2GB already in there. I've got one on order now. If you've got 2GB (1GB x 2 sticks) then the 6GB upgrade is available as a package, I believe.

    Cheers.

    Yes, this has been discussed in dozens of threads.

    You can find specs on all Apple products:
    • By visiting EveryMac.com
    • By using Mactracker
    • By entering your serial number here to find specs for your model. (Be aware that some models can use more RAM than Apple shows. Check EveryMac or MacTracker to verify.)
