Just curious if anyone has tried maxing out the ram on a late 2009 Macbook (white, not pro) to 16GB running El Capitan or Yosemite?

Everymac's page states that the max is 8GB. Why not 16GB?



The chipset and processor may not support more RAM, even though you can physically put it in. You can always try. Weird behaviour and instability result from that.

  • Correct. While they can add more RAM physically, it won't recognize it if that amount is not supported (let alone the type). Jun 3 '18 at 0:18
