How Much Memory Can Upgrade With MacBook Pro Late 2011

Apr 8, 2012

I am wondering how much memory I can upgrade with my MacBook Pro Late 2011. I went on Apple.com and they only offer up to 8GB of Ram for my model when I looked around and saw that on OWC ( MacSales.com) which is a very excellent reliable source for all your Apple Products. But, I was able to find a 16GB of Ram for my MacBook Pro Late 2011 and it said it can be used for my MacBook Pro.Basically Apple says its only up to 8GB of Ram while I see other people have 16GB of Ram for the same year as mine but the only difference is the the size of the computer. Anybody could give me a answer with this question as I dont want to buy the 16GB of Ram and it not working for my computer.†url...

MacBook Pro :: 16gb Memory Upgrade For 13" Early 2011?

Apr 28, 2012

I run parallels a fair bit for research and my MBP is pretty slow. Took it to genius and he said to get a memory upgrade to 8GB. However, I'm reading everywhere that it can handle 16GB and the Crucial says it is compatible (only £100 ish for this so seems a pretty good deal). All well and good- but will this invalidate Apple care as the max Apple state it can handle is 8GB? Or.....is 8GB going to be enough anyway?

MacBook :: Late 2011 13" Started Getting Hot?

Mar 28, 2012

Up until about two weeks ago my MBP was idling around 35-40 c. NOW all of a sudden is is idling areound 65 c!!! I can boot my machine after being off for hours and in a matter of minutes the temperature will rise. I do not play games, and the most video card strain I put on it is an occasional you tube video. I had smcfan control installed but deleted it because seeing the temperatures up there on the monitor started freaking me out. It wouldn't matter if I ran the fan at 5000+ rpm, it would not cool it down. Should I schedule an appt with the Apple store? It is less than 5 months old.

MacBook Pro :: Late 2011 Powering On Automatically?

May 29, 2012

In january 2012 i received MacBook Pro as gift from my brother. MacBook works fine, untill yesterday, when turned off automatically. When i tried to turn it on again, nothing happened. I tried with resetting SMC, PRAM, NVRAM, but that doesn't help at all.  

I thought it was battery, so i opened it, disconnected battery, and when i plugged in MagSafe, MBP automatically switched on. When i shutdown MBP via shutdown button inside OSX, everything went fine, but when i pushed Power On button on MBP, it won't turn on again. So, i tried to replug again MagSafe, and MBP powered on again automatically. When i plugged back battery again, it won't power on, even with MagSafe "trick".  

I live in Serbia, and in my country, there is no AppleStore :/ To make it worse, since my brother moved to another city, he lost warranty, so we don't have it What should i do? MBP is old only 6 months

MacBook Pro :: Max RAM In A 17" Late 2011 8GB Or 16GB?

Jun 12, 2012

I just bought a late 2011 17" MBP with 4GB RAM (standard).Having upgraded to Adobe CS6 I am finding the machine impossibly slow, so I figure I need more RAM. Apple says max = 8GB (2x4), but Crucial Memory recommend 16GB "guaranteed compatible". I'm now quite unsure: can I really put 16GB in? Are Apple wrong? If Crucial have sold loads of 16GB kits that can't be used, surely they'd have taken it off their website? Can anyone confirm whether I can put 16GB (i.e. you've actually done it successfully).I'm running Lion 10.7.4

MacBook Pro :: Maximizing Battery Life On Late 2011?

May 17, 2012

I know - or think I recall - that there was a user's tips article on maximizing battery life. When I'm outdoors with my MBP, I always have Photoshop CS6, InDesign CS6, Illustrator CS6, Acrobat Pro X, Parallels Desktop, MS Word and maybe a few 'little' apps running. I need these to get my projects done. I can usually get about 3 1/2 hours out of my battery but if I could get 5, I'd be happy. 

Can anyone point me in the right direction for the most current (at least 2011) user tip on the topic?

Mac OS X (10.7.4), 16 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD

MacBook Pro :: Why Does 15" Late 2011 Get Hot In Different Locations In The House

Jun 30, 2012

When I have it in my room it's maintains a cool temperature; but when at the desk, it gets extremely hot. I'm using Wi-fi.

Could it be the environment? The room is dark while the desk/office area is typically brightly lit.

Could it be the distance from the wi-fi access point? The wi-fi strength meter is always full although the room is closer to the access point than the office.
