Certain 2010 MacBook, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini models join the ’16GB’ MaxRAM club

Do you have a 2010 Mac mini, 13” MacBook or 13” MacBook Pro? Can you benefit from more than 8GB of memory? If you answered yes to both, you will be pleased to know that extensive qualification in our test lab has concluded. These Macs are now OWC MaxRAM Certified for up to 16GB with this OWC 16GB Memory Kit available now and specifically qualified just for these Mac models.

While these systems were originally factory limited to 8GB, the right Apple OS version, current EFI update(s), and correct spec/build memory modules now enable them to support and have the full benefit from up to 16GB of installed memory.  This isn’t the first time something like this happened, however, after the fact enabling such a benefit. A while back, we had a similar instance with the Late 2008 MacBook Pros, wherein having the proper OS version and a particular firmware update allowed you to max your RAM out at 8GB vs. a prior 4GB to 6GB max.

Just like with those Late 2008 MBP models, your Mac needs to meet specific criteria for this to work. In the case of the 2010 Macs, here’s what you must have: Article Continues…
