Hey all, Real quick question, I'm sorry for adding to the already large number of RAM threads on here, but I just was wondering how much RAM to upgrade my 15" Early 2011 MBP to. I did a search but didn't find what I was looking for. It currently has 4 GB of 1333 MHz RAM and it definitely shorts out when I use iLife or iWork with Safari and iTunes and Skype and such open in the background. I use this combination of programs a lot, and I'm going into engineering undergrad in the fall so I'm assuming I'll be using some more intensive software as well (correct me if I'm wrong, I'm new to the whole college scene ). Do you recommend going up to 8 GB or 16 GB of RAM with the usage I've outlined above? And can the 15" Early 2011 MBP handle 16 at all? The built in System Information tool says 8 GB max but it seems like 16 GB will also work? It also says that DDR3-1333 is the maximum speed but I wouldn't mind going up to 1600, I'm just not sure if it is supported or if I will notice a difference. Any preferred brands? I'm leaning towards Corsair. Thanks very much in advance.
