    I have a Late 2008 Unibody 15 inch MacBook Pro, here are the exact specs from System Information:

    I want to upgrade the current 4 GB of RAM to 8 GB, and I'm aware that originally these machines only supported 4 GB officially, and 6 GB in practice. However, not long ago I heard that a firmware update boosted the maximum RAM to 8 GB, but this is not documented officially anywhere, and Apple's site still states 4 GB as the maximum for this machine, and so does Crucial.

    Would 8 GB work fine or not? If yes, would you recommend the following?:

    Cheers!

    Yes, the RAM will work. The firmware update has probably already been done one your computer through regular old software update.
