    Hi All,

    This has probably been asked before... but... does anyone know what the max ram you can have in an MBP 15" 2011 machine is? I've done a bit of research but can't seem to find anything definite?... would I be right in saying 8gb?

    Thanks in advance :eek:

    Yes, it has been asked before. :D

    No, you wouldn't be right in saying 8GBs, if you're asking about the unofficial max RAM.;)

    16GB, as of now, because 16GB SO-DIMMs don't exist yet, but theoretically they can accept 32GB.

    A google search would've told you as much.

    That may be a false statements. The i7 CPU's are able to handle 32GB because some gaming laptops have 4 ram slots. I highly doubt these logic boards will support more than a 8GB chip.
