Hi All,

I'm new Macbook usesr.Two weeks before I bought a Macbook Pro (Late 2011) in India, It is working fine but Its very slow when I use Windows hosted on a VM Ware. So I'm thinking of upgrading the Ram.


I have a couple of questions..


1. What is the maximum size of RAM that can be upgraded (8 or 16 GB) ?

2. What is the price of apple RAM. Can I go for other brands ?

3. My nearest apple authorized center (Chennai, India) told me that its possible to upgrade to 8GB kingston RAM. Is that recommended ?

4. Can I upgrade the RAM on my own. Will it affects the warrany (1 year limited warranty)


Please advice on this...

Thanks in advance !!

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.2), RAM
