    I was always under the impression that 4GB was the max I could have. Is that incorrect?

    I would love to increase to 8GB if possible. Is that something I could get done and if so, could you direct me to where I could purchase the additional ram? Thanks!

    Yes you can. Any of the 13" MBPs can take 8GB. This would be perfect for you.

    great. thanks.


    I know they upgraded the speed in the new macbook pros ram to 1333MHz. Is there a way to upgrade to 8GB on my model and get the 1333MHz?

    You could, but it wouldn't make a difference in performance.

    Better off just getting the 1066 MHz, it would most probably downclock the 1333 MHz anyway.
