Hi there,


I'm very confused.  Starting to feel the limit of 4gb on my MacBook pro, and interested in updating the RAM, but very confused about how much I can install, and the spec I need.


I am in the process of installing OSX Lion (so not sure if this updates any of the limitations I've read that older MacBook's have memory wise).


Here is my current spec:


  Model Identifier:          MacBookPro5,1

  Processor Name:          Intel Core 2 Duo

  Processor Speed:          2.8 GHz

  Number Of Processors:          1

  Total Number Of Cores:          2

  L2 Cache:          6 MB

  Memory:          4 GB

  Bus Speed:          1.07 GHz

  Boot ROM Version:          MBP51.007E.B05

  SMC Version (system):          1.33f8


I'd sincerly appreciate input from a knowledgeable source!  How much RAM can I/should I install, and how perhaps more details on the type of RAM and where to get it from *UK.


Many thanks!



MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7)
