Hi,

I have a 13" MBP. It is more or less three years
since I have had my MBP.

My MBP has an Intel Core i5 processor and its
speed is 2.3 GHz. It came with a(n) standard
4 GB of RAM and I think one can max it out to
16 GB.

Is there any other computer spec. I should be
aware of besides computer size, (13.3"), pro-
cessor and its speed ??

I have found these two options. One from crucial,
and one from Newegg. However, Newegg does
not offer 2x8GB of RAM, but 4x4GB of RAM. So
it looks like I'll be getting the RAM from Crucial.

I just wonder if I gave the right specs for the RAM
I may get and with crucial the price does not come
very cheap at $159.99 !!! But the one from Newegg
is listed at $212.57 !!!

Thank you in advance, kind regards,

P.S. I just saw a last offer from amazon.com:

If your machine can support 16gb, you'll want the 2x8 chips (two 8gb cards). MacBook Pros only have two slots. Four 4gb cards won't work.

Hi,

Thank you for your message : ) !!!

I'll get 2x8GB then!

I was afraid I may get the RAM wrong,
but it seems to me that apple didn't
manufacture previous or future models
with far too identical characteristics so
that I may confuse things and at the
end I would get the wrong type of RAM!

Thank you again, kind regards,

igmolinav : ) !!!

Hello.. you ARE going to want to do a bit more research and get SPECIFICS of Model # as a minimum.. if it truly is a 2011 (about 3 yrs old) and as you spec it, then likely it can accept 16GB, even though Apple would have said not designed to use originally..

This site has always served me well for the past several years and RAM Upgrades I have done!! Just FIND yours, and Study Up.. Good Luck!! :apple:
