    I was browsing OWC and they had 16 gb memory kits for 2010 macbook pro. It suppose to accept a max 8. So i figured wth, if it doesnt work I can send it back. Well I have 16gb installed now and its working perfectly. Im so happy that I can run 16gb in the 2010. this is great!

    Of course 16GB works. You can find specs on all Apple products, including maximum RAM:

    I have the 2012 21.5" iMac, ram maxed out at 16GB even though the CPU support 32GB. I don't know what the deal is with apple and RAM but It like this for most of their mac's

    thanks for the info guys. I didnt know about everymac. I just figured I was stuck with 8 and not many people really talked about it. Now that its running 16gb im ecstatic. I know the machine is slow compared to an i5 or i7 but this machine should last even longer for what i do.
