After someone backed out on my previous arrangement to pick up a 2011 15" for my 2012 13", I may have tracked down a 2010 17". My primary need is the screen real estate. A Retina just isn't a wise purchase for me right now, and the extra heft isn't a big deal for moving things around. I also do not really need much horsepower as this is primarily a Excel/PDF/Word research and document based machine. That said, 1920x1200 to open multiple documents side by side would be great. My concern is that I currently have 2x8GB sticks of 1333 mhz memory in my 2012. The 2010 is only "rated" for 8GB at 1066, but I have had mixed experiences in the past. With some previous systems, I have used 1333 and 1600 mhz DDR3 in machines only supporting 1066, and it just downclocked automatically. Other times I have been riddled with kernel panics to the point of it being nearly unusable [without saving documents and spreadsheets every 10-15 minutes]. The other concern is size. I have read of it being unofficially supported (16GB) in the 2010 models, but for every person I read that says it works fine, I find another that says "nope, no dice." Can anyone verify 100% whether 2x8GB sticks of 1333mhz memory would function in a 2.53ghz 2010 17" cMBP? Thanks!
