    What is the most amount of RAM that the MBP 13 2011 can use? 8GB? 16GB?

    You can find specs on all Apple products, including maximum RAM:
    • By visiting EveryMac.com
    • By using Mactracker
    • By entering your serial number here to find specs for your model. (Be aware that some models can use more RAM than Apple shows. Check EveryMac or MacTracker to verify.)

    what does 16gb of ram do exactly? i mean, what takes advantage of it?
    am getting a new 13", and plan on 8gigs (up from 4gb on my current mac).

    but is 16gb really worth it? how will it be used?

    well you first need to ask yourself, how will you use it...

    i think the easiest way to utilize 16gb is if you use photoshop or do any video editing, those are ram eaters.

    i produce music and dont even see myself using 16gb's. i think 8 is fine. so id say stick with 8, if you needed 16, you wouldnt be asking that question in the first place.

    coming from a late-2008 mbp, this should be a leap forward!
