    Okay, i have the 2010 macbook with 4gb of ram (as apposed to the standard 2) and i was wondering if it would be worth upgrading 8gb? Apple say 4gb is the maximum but everywhere else say otherwise. As far as i am aware if you upgrade ram it doesn't void the warranty but what if i upgraded it above what apple says is possible? So, would i still be covered? and if i did improve it would there be a noticable difference? Thanks

    You can find specs on all Apple products, including maximum RAM:
    • By visiting EveryMac.com: Actual Maximum RAM
    • By using Mactracker
    • By entering your serial number here to find specs for your model. (Be aware that some models can use more RAM than Apple shows. Check EveryMac or MacTracker to verify.)
    Installation of user-installable parts such as RAM does not void the Apple Warranty or the AppleCare Protection Plan, unless you damage something in the process.
