    Hello guys, I am the happy owner of a 2012 macbook pro 2.3 Ghx i7 with 4Gb of ram. I have tinkering with the idea of upgrading to 16Gb over the holidays =). I was wondering if you could explain a few things to me.
    First, does my machine support 16Gb altough apple claims to support maximum 8Gb? Secondly, what is the difference between 1.5 and 1.35 V ram, will 1.5V work in my machine, will it lower my battery life when in use (I am a student so battery life is pretty important to me). Lastly, will I void my warranty by switching ram my self, should I save the module in case my computer ****s up and I need to return it to apple (ie. switch out my ram and put the stock ram back in).

    Thank You,
    Martin Krastev

    1) Yes
    2) Use 1.5v. Im pretty sure thats the standard for all MBPs these days.
    3) And no, its stated by Apple that HDD/SSD and RAM is user upgradable.
