Hi guys,

I have a first generation 15" 2.4Ghz unibody MacBook Pro with 4GB of RAM running Leopard. I want to know if it's possible to upgrade to 8GB of RAM after installing the new Snow Leopard. Is it possible at all?

I've heard the mid 2009 second gen unibody MacBook Pros(2.5Ghz and up) have a different chipset which allows 8GB of Ram. If so I'm stuck.

Thanks.

Not that I am aware. Your machine officially supports a max of 4GB of RAM. However, you can put a 4GB stick and a 2GB stick in giving you 6GB of RAM. Some guys on here have done it, but seen no noticeable improvement.
