Hey guys!

So, I need more RAM (from 4GB to 8GB FYI) on my MacBook Pro 13" early 2011 model. I run a lot of Adobe software and it seems to be pulling me back sometimes. Apple RAM is just too expensive, so do anyone have any suggestion on the RAM I should get? Can I buy RAM and take it to an Apple Store and ask them to fix it in for me? Does replacing it myself void warranty?

Thanks in Advanced!

RAM in a MacBook is a user accessible part it won't void your warranty. I also suggest Crucial for the RAM as it is much cheaper than apples, However apple will not fit third party RAM in your machine.

Can I fit in 2 8GB cards? so adds up to 16GB or does the MacBook Pro only take maximum of 8?

No, the MacBook Pro's as far as I know only support 8GB and 16GB is overkill anyway dude.

@Ebotman is correct, the MBP will only support up to 8GB.
