Thanks! Im just going to buy a 15" 2011 refurbished mode that I can put 16gbs in. :)
I really think the retina display is a little overkill for now.

Even if it supports more you won't be able to install more RAM than you can configure from the Apple Online Store, as the RAM is soldered onto the logic board.
Quite true, for the retina display model, not for the others.

They will support 16gb of ram because i asked apple on the live chat if the parts on the new macbook pro 2012 15 inch are upgradable and they said yes. they said that it is the same as the 2011 macbook pro so yes they will be able to upgrade to 16gb of ram.

edit: im talking about Only the new macbook pros NOT the retina macbook pro

So 16gbs is all you'll ever be able to put in these new 2012 machines?
Thanks! sorry for being such a pain. I just really need the max ram for Photoshop and I'm always on the go. :)
