Hi All - I have been on the apple site today and see that macbook pro 15ich early 2011 memory upgrade is only up-gradable to 8GB but some say it can go to 16GB . I need to make the right choice for my client, here tried 16GB and found the system to be unstable so I was thinking of following the able suggestion of 8GB but I first wanted to see what thought you might have. Any feedback would be appreciated.
