    So, with new UMBP, i saw the RAM is now expandable up to 8 gigs. Seeing as how it is practically the same hardware as the UMB, is the UMB expandable to 8 gigs??? I believe officially, they were only supported to 4, but if 8 is possible, I would love to get 8. Any thoughts/concrete knowledge on this topic?

    Wouldn't you have to buy collector's edition RAM?

    Actually, I believe they use the same DDR3 1066 RAM. I am just wondering if UMB :apple:Collector's Edition:apple: with 2.4 Ghz processor is expandable (unofficially) to 8 gigs, or is it stuck at 4.

    Everything I have read says that all the 1st Gen Unibodies are stuck at 4. Some people are running MBP with 6, I do not know if this is possible in the "collector's edition".

    Perhaps SL will allow the 1st Gen unibodies the ability to run with 8.

    I hope so. Apple's site shows that it is officially 4 gigs max. Anyone try upping the RAM past that?

    Bravo, sir!

    Calling the UMB a 'Collectors Edition' is just so lame. Face it, we have an outdated model with no Firewire or SD slot.

    Haha. True, but I'm ok with it. It runs good for me, I just want to up the RAM for some performance boosts.

    To match the ego boost of the new name?

    This thread is hillarious. So any discontinued Mac model is now a "Collector's Edition"? If that's the case I have lots of electronics that are "Collector's Editions". :p

    haha, it's just a joke. I think the reason people started calling it Collectors Edition was cause it only lasted 1 generation, for 7 months, before being rebranded. In all seriousness though, is the RAM expandable to 8 gigs??? This is a burning question that I must know the answer to.

    I may be willing to trade my RARE 2.0 Collectors Edition for a new 17" MBP. I know I'm getting screwed over in the deal, but I'm feeling generous.
