Does anyone know if these models will support more than 16gbs of ram?
For now, there is no indication that they do. However, Apple is well known for understating maximum RAM capacity.
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
New 15" macbook pros
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.
Once 16 GB 204-pin DDR3 SO-DIMM RAM modules are available, you will be able to upgrade to 32 GB RAM, as the SB and IB chipsets support 32 GB RAM.
