    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 http://www.crucial.com 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.
