    Just looking for some clarification.

    I have a late 2008 macbook pro 15 inch and am looking to upgrade my RAM. I'm reading conflicting reports on how much RAM I can upgrade to. Some say 4gb (2x 2gb), some say 8gb (2x4gb). I'd rather put the 8gb in but not sure if this is poss.

    My serial number is W89120A48Q2 and I am running OS X 10.9.2 (13C1021).

    These are the Crucial units I'm looking at.


    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Far from here

    you actually can upgrade to 8 GB.

    Here are the infos from Mactracker for the Macbook Pro 15" Late 2008 (Macbook Pro 5,1) :

    Maximum Memory : 8.0 GB (Actual) 4.0 GB (Apple)
    Memory Slots : 2 - 204-pin PC3-8500 (1066 MHz) DDR3 SO-DIMM

    Your Crucial link is fine.

    According to your serial number, you have a late 2008 machine which can accept 8GB of RAM.
