    Oh yeah another ram thread!

    I assume you have the regular non-retina MBP? In which case yes it supports 16gb. But why do that if 8gb runs fine?

    It supports up to 32GB of RAM if you can find 16GB SO-DIMMs to use.

    Does your computer run fine now? If you do, no need to upgrade.

    If you have doubts, no need to upgrade.

    The mid-2012 ones can support 16GB without any problems.

    And whether you need 16GB or not......read here: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1730485

    You can run 16gb of ram, like others mentioned above.
