Mulder2000: Software Update wont show full version upgrades, and it isnt possible to upgrade straight from 10.6.8 to Sierra or High Sierra.

Can any give me a rec for buying memory for my MacBookPro?


Also, I was reading here last night that people running a mid 2012 non-retina MacBookPro mod 9.2 with 2GB of DDR3 at 1600Mhz installed 16GB against Apple's advice that 8GB was the max upgrade. It seemed to work in most cases and made their Macs super-fast. There was a co. mentioned that they all bought their sticks from, but I lost the thread. Any that can hook me into this convo? Thanks. I have moderate digital skills, but have been learning more every day thanks to reading this forum.


 

I've got one myself, but I thought that it came standard with 4 GB as two 2 GB SODIMMs.  I bought mine in early 2015 because the price was right ($900 on sale).  That's the setup I have and I haven't changed the memory, although I had a corrupted hard drive that I replaced last weekend.  Mechanically it's pretty easy to remove the cover, but do take care to make sure that you put the screws back in the right places.  The short screws come as shouldered (where the threads stop midway) and non.  You'll need a #00 Phillips screwdriver, although I've used a #0 carefully.  When I had the cover off I've tried removing the RAM and putting it back in, and as long as that's all you're doing it's pretty easy.  Installing a new drive isn't too hard, although care is needed with the drive cable, which is somewhat delicate.

 

Most of the recommendations I've heard are that it actually maxes out at 16 GB (2x8 GB).

I have a macbook pro mid 2012.  I planned to replace 2 chips with 4G each.  But it says I can add 16.  Recommendations? And there are several different DDR3L-1600.  What's the difference?



 

The recommendation is for 204-pin PC3-12800 (aka DDR3 1600) SODIMMs.  I've heard that PC3L/DDR3L isn't recommended for Apple products.  That operates at 1.35V, while PC3/DDR operates at 1.5V.


MacBook Pro: How to remove or install memory - Apple Support




























MacBook Pro (13-inch, mid 2012)
Number of memory slots 2
Base memory 4 GB
Maximum memory 8 GB
Memory card specifications - Double Data Rate Small Outline Dual Inline Memory Module (DDR3) format
- 67.6mm x 30mm (1.18 inch)
- 2 GB or 4 GB
- 204-pin
- PC3-12800 DDR3 1600 MHz type RAM
Additional notes For best performance, fill both memory slots, installing an equal memory module in each slot.


 

Of course they don't state that it takes up to 16 GB (2 x 8 GB), but that's something that's well understood to work.

 

PC3L memory theoretically can work at 1.5V in place of PC3 memory, but that's dependent on the host machine being able to auto-select.  Apple doesn't say it's OK, so why chance it?  I've seen some places sell it claiming it will work on a MacBook Pro that takes PC3 memory, but that doesn't sound right.  It's also mentioned in this topic, where the PC3L/DDR3L memory didn't work:

Hey there, Siddharth! 

Thanks for visiting the Apple Support Communities. From your post, I understand that you are having trouble getting your MacBook Air to read your Kingston memory stick. When you plug it in, you just get an error that the disc wasn't ejected properly. I'm happy to help!

From what you've described, I would first suggest restarting your MacBook Air by selecting the Apple  menu > Restart. After the computer is back on, connect your Kingston memory stick and see if the computer reads it. If not, I would recommend using Disk Utility First Aid to check the Kingston stick: Verify a disk using Disk Utility on Mac - Apple Support.

If you still cannot get the memory stick to connect, don't hesitate to respond back. 

Have a good day!

Registered DIMMs do not work with ANY unregistered DIMMs in the machine.

 

test those new ones alone and see if they work at all.

If you edit/render video, the fastest i7 processor and lots of RAM will help not having to wait forever for the rendering process (such as being able to fix an entire dinner while waiting).

 

Also, remember that in order for those processes to be reasonably efficient, the general recommendation is that you need to have at least as much empty space on your hard drive as you have temp. files in your project. I can easily amass 100 - 150 GB of temp files while working on a one hour HD project. So I'd suggest a 480 - 500 GB hard drive.

 

And, additionally, if you regularly delete the large temp files when finished with the project, you will shorten the life of an SSD; I will put up with the somewhat slower 7200 rpm spinning drive for video work (do not go for the 5400 rpm - too slow) because it will last longer.
