    Just now bought Mountain Lion from Appstore and its pretty much smooth but im thinking of upgrading my RAM (4GB DDR3 1333MHz) to 16GB DDR3 1333MHz.

    Key Features of G.Skill SQ DDR3 8 GB Laptop (Mac) RAM (FA-1333C9S-8GSQ)
    DDR3-1333/PC3-10600
    SO-DIMM Memory Module
    204-pin Configuration
    9-9-9 CAS Latency
    Dual Channel Memory Configuration
    Unbuffered
    1 x 8 GB DRAM Structure

    Just want to know will this work with my current macbook pro late 2011.

    Yes it will. I am using 16 in my Late 2011 and it works perfectly, it recognizes all 16gb. I was worried about that before i purchased as well. If you google it im sure you will find many threads about it.
