Just done the crucial scan, with their own software and it says :
Memory Type: DDR3 PC3-10600, DDR3 (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 16GB
Currently Installed Memory: 8GB
Total Memory Slots: 2
Available Memory Slots: 0
Each memory slot can hold DDR3 PC3-10600 with a maximum of 8GB per slot.*
*Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory.
This 15" system may utilize one of the following processors: 2.0GHz, 2.2GHz or 2.3GHz Quad Core Intel Core i7 processor.
Memory or DRAM is the 'working' memory of the computer. It's used to store data for programs (sequences of instructions) on a temporary basis."
So again this is saying it can take 16GB?
Are apple saying no, as you say because they don't do 8GB sticks, and they want me to buy from them, or is it cause of the compatibility issues? and stability?
Anyone else using 16Gb in MBP 2011 early 2.2Ghz i7?
