    Can the late MBP laptops use ddr3 1333ghz ram, or is it inly ddr3 1066?

    Also on a side note any predictions as to the 17inch mbp specs after the updates? (I couldn't find anything via search) Core2duo or newer quad core?

    The CPU FSB is only 1066Mhz. Correct me if I'm wrong (I might be on this one) but I can't think of what benefit you could get from running the RAM faster than the FSB.

    My PC runs benchmarks at a higher rate if I have my RAM run in tandem with my FSB, and not just up to manufacturer specs. So you are right, unless we are both wrong. :cool:

    I reckon we might see Quad-Core in the new 17".
