    I have a:

    macbook pro 17"
    intel core 2 duo processor
    2.33 ghz

    When I bought my laptop I was told it was only upgradable to 3 gigs of ram which i later did, but I saw a friend and he told me he upgraded to 6gb of ram is this possible? Will the computer read whatever amount of ram I install or is their a limit?

    thanks again guys-

    You can find specs on all Apple products, including maximum RAM:
    • By visiting EveryMac.com: Actual Maximum RAM
    • By using Mactracker
    • By entering your serial number here to find specs for your model. (Be aware that some models can use more RAM than Apple shows. Check EveryMac or MacTracker to verify.)
