Thank you my sight is very bad and I've been working on a problem with my MacBookPro since 10.00am this morning,

which I've now got working.I'm 77 years old and been a Mac user since 1992. My 2015 MacBook Pro Retina is currently at an Authorised Apple Service Provider. They need the firmware password which I don't have, even though the Retina was new, I was never asked to put in a Firmware Password.

 

I'm in England, UK and there is EU legislation I can use to either have the Retina replaced or a refund for up to 5 years.

 

If necessary I'll sue them, as I am a Welfare Rights Lawyer and UK Consumer Protection Law is one of my areas of specialism

 

Thanks again

 

Jim

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).


The cpu can not be upgraded.

Yes they can - that's exactly the configuration I've got on two Macs and they work a charm. I'd recommend getting your RAM modules from Crucial or Macsales - they guarantee their chips work and have a RAM selector on their websites to ensure you get exactly the right spec chips.

No.  That vintage of MBP has some sort of nonstandard use of the PCIe interface.  Only OWC and Transcend have aftermarket SSDs that are known to work, and they do it as 240/480 GB.  None of the Apple models with replaceable SSD cards (as opposed to 2.5" SATA) are known to boot internally with commodity SSDs like the Samsung you're looking at.  The card is also kind of shorter but fatter.

 

It's just the JetDrive 720/725 and OWC Aura 6G/6G Pro.  The Transcend has a 960 GB, while the Aura 6G goes up to 1 or 2 TB.
