    Question RAM upgrade question Early 2011 MBP
    RAM: (i have from an old windows pc-notebook)
    I have DDR3 PC3 10600
    1333MHz 2x4gb SODIMM

    Will it work in MBP early 2011 13 inch 2.37ghz intel hd3000?

    I guess I mean to ask will any RAM from any manufacturer that has the proper specs

    do I have to do anything to the ram when I switch it?

    from apple: (MacBook Pro: How to remove or install memory)
    MacBook Pro (13-inch, Late 2011) and MacBook Pro (13-inch, Early 2011)

    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
    - PC3-10600 DDR3 1333 MHz type RAM
    Additional notes For best performance, fill both memory slots, installing an equal memory module in each slot.

    Just try it. If it works it works...if it doesn't...it doesn't. It's not going to hurt anything to try.

    If it doesn't work...then get the correct ram from these guys:

    - Crucial.com
    - Other World Computing (OWC)

    Be aware your MBP can run up to 16GB of memory. This has been updated since its release.
    Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Is this applicable to the new MBP (non retina)?
    On the Apple site, the max memory upgrade seems to be up to 8GB?

    Just wondering. Thanks, CB

    Nope. The Retina models have the memory soldered fast. There is no way to upgrade outside of what Apple supplies. If they don't offer a 16GB option from the factory, then you're stuck with 8GB.

    Yet another of the many examples of why the Retina MBP sucks.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
