I see that the "new" non-Retina Display MacBook Pro shows a max of 8 gig of RAM.  But I'm seeing kits for 16 gig, and even the Apple Store people seem equivocal about whether it will handle 16.  Is there any harm in putting 16 gig in it?  Any benefit?  For that matter, is there a general answer to this question?  What prevents me from putting as much RAM as I can find in?  I'm told that there are firmware limitations, but again, I'm hearing different answers from different sources.  Thanks!
