    I think just maybe in mid to late 2009, we really just got to 4 GBs and there has been no talk about 8 GBs in a notebook anytime soon.

    It is possible though right? I mean assuming there was 8GBs (4+4) available.

    The Santa Rosa chipset (PM/GM965) supports up to 8 GB of RAM.

    The problem is getting that into two slots.

    They support 8GB now. There just aren't any single 4GB sticks.

    Tracing the part number down yields a 2X2GB kit. Oh well....
