    According to Apple's Specifications page for the 15" MBP (Late 2008), 4GB RAM was the maximum:

    That doesn't mean anything. Many Macs can support more ram than Apple claims

    I understand that. I am just going by what Apple says.

    there's been some posts that an EFI firmware update allows 8gb. Try a search on mroogle.

    I searched, but came up with nothing specific to late 2008 uMBP's. Anyone else find anything?
