I have an early 2011 15in MacBook Pro with 4GB of RAM and I was noticing recently that it would be great to upgrade to more memory because I have been running low recently. I did some research and found that this actually doesn't void your warranty since Apple provides do it yourself instructions. However, they say that the maximum that is supported in this model is 8GB. Is this actually true, or can I put in 16GB and that will work? Also, is crucial brand memory good? I found some on Amazon for cheap and I have seen it elsewhere so I was just wondering if it is reliable. I was also wondering the same thing about their SSDs since I might upgrade to one of those at the same time that I upgrade my memory. Thanks!! PS: Also, if you know of any other brands of memory/SSD that you think are good, be sure to mention them. I'm just trying to find the best one, don't necessarily want to go with crucial i just found it and it was cheap.
