    Apple's "suggested" max RAM is 4GB. I was wondering if anyone has had any success with installing 8GB of RAM on the MB471LL/A (Late 2008) MBP.

    Thanks

    Thank you for the speedy reply. Also, does it matter the brand that I get? I was looking to get this. Would this be compatible with my computer?

    Crucial, G.Skill, etc. are good brands. OWC is fine but overpriced. Just go to Crucial.com and use their compatibility guide.

    I agree with this and just wanted to add that Corsair also makes good RAM.
