    Hi Everyone,

    I think this is a fairly simple question.

    I am thinking of getting a new 2012 MBP and selling my 2011 MBP... thing is I got 16Gb of 1333 Mhz RAM for the 2011 and if possible I would like to use it in the 2012 MBP but it has takes 1600 Mhz chips so I am not sure if I can use the old 1333 Mhz RAM.... anyone able to let me know if this is doable or if I am going to have to buy another two 8gb Chips?

    BTW I am going to buy a non retina 2012 MBP so the RAM isn't soldered in.

    Thanks for the advice.
