Hello, all you MacBook Pro fanatics!


I have a late 2011 MacBook Pro with 8 GB of RAM installed - I bought the Corsair memory from Amazon for under $50 and installed it myself.


Amazon now has a 16GB kit fro Corsair for only $100 - the least expensive price I've found. The only RAM intensive app I really run is Photoshop CS6, but I do keep a lot of apps open at one time (Acrobat Pro X, Outlook, InDesign CS6, Illustrator CS6, Word, Parallels running XP, iTunes at the moment) and I was wondering if the extra RAM would actually help me out.


I'm looking for some advice from people who have already upgraded to 16 GB... can you actually tell a difference?


Any advice would be most welcome.



Mac OS X (10.7.4), 8 GB RAM, 500 GB int, 1 TB ext
