According to this site, with the latest EFI update, which is included with App store updates typically (and verified on this mid-2010 MacBook), with Lion or higher it can use 16GB!


I will order two 8GB sticks and see, but it makes sense.

Did you ever get around to testing out if the 16gb of ram worked on your A1342? Thanks.


No, for some reason that I can't remember, I went with 8gb.
