    I purchased a brand new Macbook Pro from Best Buy a few months back, it is the 13" unibody with a 2.26 ghz dual core processor and came with 2gb of memory installed. I just bought the two sticks of memory from crucial.com which were Kingston DDR3 1066 204-pins, 4gb each. My friend told me that my Macbook Pro will only support up to 6gb, but my manual says that it supports up to 8gb. He also said that people have been having trouble with their motherboards by installing too much (8gb) of memory. I've done some research and looks like I'm good to go, but just want some reassurance before I install the new memory. One last thing, he also told me that 8gb is only supported on the i7 processors????

    Don't worry, your MBP WILL support the 8gb you bought

    Your friend is an idiot.

    The ram will be guaranteed to work as long as it is Apple certified. It may work if it isn't certified, but your macbook pro DOES support up to 8 GB of ram.
