    Hi I have a late 2008 macboook pro. I'm told it can hold 8gb ram. I've already upgraded the hard drive to a seagate momentus hybrid (great upgrade btw). I have a bestbuy gift card with $75 left on it, what type of ram do you all recommend I get from them?

    You can get 8 GB of 1066 MHz/1333 MHz 204-pin DDR3 SO-DIMM RAM for less than 40 USD nowadays. Maybe invest it in a small SSD and get some cheap Optibay adapter via eBay and put the OS onto the SSD and have an even faster Mac?

    The late 2008 MBP does not support that much RAM.
