    I thought before WWDC that some of the MBPs were working with 8GB RAM, like maybe the 2.66 and 2.8 or something. Can anyone confirm that? I am interested in knowing if I could get a previous generation refurb that will take 8GB when it becomes cheap enough, thus keeping 3.0Gb SATA and ExpressCard as well. Thanks!

    I thought I heard 8 fit but only 6 were usable? :confused:

    I'm using 8gb ram in my early 09 umbp 15'' 2.66, and haven't had any problems so far. And its been about a month since I upgraded...

    Excellent! Does your machine recognize and use the full 8GB? Do you think a 2.66 on the Apple refurb store would be also Early 09 or is there a way to differentiate them? Thank you for your reply!
