    Yes the new Macbook Pro's can support up to 16GB of RAM. Tested and proven.

    Exactly unless your doing some pro stuff I doubt you will ever need the 16gb.

    Save the money and just get the 8gb.

    However most people that need more than 8gb ram tend to use desktops like the iMac or Mac Pro

    It's nice to see there's on option, and then not to take advantage of it.
