    Why wouldn't it. Sandy Bridge already supports 16 GB. Actually the high end SB mobile CPUs support up to 32 GB.

    I did not know this. Does that mean my computer technically supports 32GB? I have the CTO 15" Macbook Pro with the 2.5GHz i7...

    According to Intel your CPU supports 16 GBs.

    I don't know. I checked with the Intel webpage and it says:

    2675QM (2.2 GHz low end model) 16GB
    2760QM, 2860QM (2.4/2.5 GHz) 32GB

    If the logic board can take it, then why not. Now we have to wait for Crucial and company to announce 1x16 GB bars.
