I have 4GB RAM in my macbook pro. I want to increase it up to 16GB. How can I do that and where can I buy 16GB RAM?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    Start with Crucial.com or MacSales.com (OWC).  Answer the questions about what Macbook Pro you have, and they will tell you what you need for a memory upgrade.  One and/or the other sites will provide videos on how to install the RAM.  Check out the installation video before starting to make sure you are ready to do that upgrade yourself.

     

    Both Crucial and MacSales are well respected Mac memory upgrade suppliers.

    Some brick-and-mortars carry Crucial RAM.  I bought my Crucial 16 GB RAM at microcenter.

    Go to Crucia.com or MacSales.com and filling the information requested about your Mac.  They will tell you the maximum amount of RAM your Mac can support, and then be more than happy to sell it to you.
