    It should support 8 gigs, but there are two things working against you:

    1. Apple and their history of firmware restriction of memory capacities.
    2. No one makes 4 gig PC5300 sticks as far as I know.

    You mean, Apple would artificially restrict functionality that we have paid for from us?

    Did you really buy a MBP for the ability to work with 8gb of ram....?

    Yup, they did it with the Calistoga-based iMacs, MacBooks, MacBook Pros and Minis.

    Anyone think there's a chance that the new case design will allow for 3 sticks of ram?


    Yeah, me neither.


    I want more! But don't really care.
