    Hi i have a 13" Macbook Pro 2011, i am looking at upgrading my ram. I currently have the standard memory in it 4GB. I looked at the Apple website regarding upgrading your ram and it says that the maximum memory is 8gb.

    I went to and searched there website, they say that my mac can take 16GB.

    Could someone confirm if my mac will be able to make full use of the 16gb, as i don't want to be wasting my money on something that won't benefit me.

    Here is the results the page gave me;

    As i don't have any knowledge on memory, could someone please advise me if crucial is a good brand to buy for it's price. Or would i be better off spending a little more on another brand. As from what i have looked before this, the price quoted seems very cheap.

    Thanks in advance.

    I've bought RAM from Crucial's UK arm for quite a few years now, for both work and my own Macs. I've no complaints at all about their products or service.

    All 2011 MacBook Pro models take 16GB RAM.

    Crucial is a reputable brand. In fact, I'd say it is the best consumer brand (quality for the price) right now. Other reputable brands that I've had a good experience with are Kingston, and G.Skill.
