I FINALLY just bought my first MBP, hopefully be in my hands by the end of the week! I also bought 16gb of matching RAM to upgrade from the stock 4gb - based mostly off reading posts here. here are my questions.... Apple states that the 13'' MBP is only upgradable to 8mb but it is pretty apparent that many users upgrade to 16mb anyways. Am I going to be causing any harm to my Mac by exceeding Apple's recommendation? I have seen screen shots of MBPs obviously recognizing 16gb of RAM but will I actually be utilizing all 16mb or does the Mac automatically only utilize 8mb? And lastly, am I negatively affecting or voiding may warranty by exceeding the recommended maximum amount of RAM? Thanks in advance for responding to my first of probably many posts!
