I am working on one of the first 15" Unibody MacBook Pro's (Late 2008 - MB470LL/A - MacBookPro5,1).
According to EveryMac (and other sources), this machine really only supports 4GB of RAM. It looks like higher may work, but unsure.
The machine is base with 2GB of RAM, 2 x 1GB chips. I would like to upgrade the RAM in this, but unsure of what path to take.
- Can you just purchase one 4GB stick and it be ok?
- What happens to these machines when you put 8GB in them?
- Does anyone actually sell 2x2GB chips anymore? Looking quickly on newegg I did not find any.
