Is it easy to upgrade yourself the memory to 16gb or can it only use 8GB? Thanks..
Depends on what year the machine is.
What year Macbook Pro do you have?
2011 models can use 16 GB, the ones from before that can only use 8 GB.
Upgrading RAM in MacBooks and MacBook Pros
I've got 16 gig in my early 2011 MBP.
In the Apple store this PC
It says 4GB or 8GB Upgrade but no mention of 16gb upgrade. Any idea why?
Apple doesn't officially sell you 16gb but the machine is able to run 16gb fine. There are no hardware limitations for that.
Its cheaper anyway.
Because that's all they offer. You can get 16 GB (two 8 GB sticks) from places such as www.macsales.com
