    Good Day All!

    I've got a mid 2012 13" MBP, I'm planning on upgrading the ram from the base 4, I can get a Crucial 8GB stick for $65, but I've seen comments about people maxing out their MBP's to 16... For $130, I'd be willing to go to 16, but I don't want A)void my warranty B)run my machine too hot

    I appreciate any suggestions the assembled may have...

    No it won't void your warranty.

    But keep your original RAM just in case your MBP needs servicing for some reason. Put the original RAM back in if/when you bring it to Apple. That way the new RAM can't be blamed for anything.

    No and no, more RAM does not produce more heat.

    1. Keep your original RAM until your warranty is over

    why? when someday you mac error/trouble, you just need recovery to original version (RAM 4GB, HDD 500GB) and then bring to store :)

    When they look at the log in the mac it will tell them the ram was changed but they are ok when you upgrade ram on the cMBP.
