I see on the Apple spec page Apple only "supports" 8GB of RAM in my MBP. Both crucial and macsales reports I can put 16GB in it.

CS5 is a bit of a memory hog, I like 16GB. Is that possible?

THanks

Yup, it'll work if MacSales says it'll take 16 GB's

Apple for some reason never lists the max RAM. My Late 2008 MBP for example has 4 GB of official supported RAM, but I have 8 GB in it

The next sentence is true. The previous sentence is false.
