    I purchased my MacBook Pro back in 2009 with 2x2GB RAM cards. I have three questions:

    1. I would like to know if I might be able to upgrade these cards to either 2x4GB (8GB) or 2x8GB (16GB) to improve my processor speed?

    2. Is there a preferred manufacturer of this upgrade? I'm seeing a bit about Mac RAM Direct's Hypervelocity.

    3. And, would I be able to remove the current 4GB and install these upgrades myself?

    Thank you in advance for any assistance or suggestions you may have.

    My computer's information is as follows...
