The non-retina models can be upgraded up to 16 GB!

You can replace one module or both as an example replacing one you could get to 12 GB (one 4 GB & one 8GB module) or swap out both to get to 16 GB. But before you make this jump make sure its going to improve performance. Often upgrading the HD to a SSHD or SSD will get you more performance bang for most.

Here's the Apple T/N which goes over the details: MacBook Pro: How to remove or install memory

Dan, why is there no "accept as answer" button anymore? Every time I try to do it the option isn't there.


@pccheese It's there for the moderators. But you should still be able to vote.


That's what I mean, I previously had the option to vote. Now when I go to moderate the option isn't there.


Very helpful - thanks
