    Hey guys, I'm thinking of upgrading the ram on my early 2011 macbook pro from a stock 4gig but I have no idea what logic board model is used so i can't figure out what rams are compatible. And i was also wandering if using 2x 8gig rams would work on my model and if so is it worth it? or would the 2x 4gig be enough. I'm a media student so i do process videos and photos quite often, but not in very big sums. thanks

    2011 support up to 16GB ram of up to 1600MHz and it will run at 1600MHz.

    1333MHz is what ships but Sandy Bridge supports up to 1600MHz
