Can I upgrade my Mac Pro Memory from 4 GB to 8 GB DDR3?
I have below Specs in my laptop:
Model Name: MacBook Pro
Model Identifier: MacBookPro5, 1
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 2.53 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1
Total Number Of Cores: 2
L2 Cache: 6 MB
Memory: 4 GB
Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz
Boot ROM Version: MBP51.0074.B01
SMC Version: 1.33f8
Many reports I have seen say that you can go over 4GB of RAM in your Mac Pro but not to 8GB. People who have attempted putting 8 GBs in their MacBook Pros have had stability problems. 6GB seems to be stable. I would perhaps wait and see if there is an Apple firmware update for the Unibody 15™ MacBook Pro, allowing it to support a full 8 GB of RAM like the 17™ Macbook Pros can.
