I am buying RAM for my macbook pro, mid 2012. I used your scanner, and it told me that I could get up to 16GB (even though the apple website only says up to 8?). It told me I could buy this one:
Crucial 16GB Kit (2 x 8GB) DDR3L-1600 SODIMM Memory for Mac CT3373648
I went on amazon and found what I think is the same product (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Crucial-8GBx2-PC3L-12800-SODIMM-204-Pin/dp/B007B5S52C/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=U...), but it doesn't appear to have matching item model numbers. On your website it says CT3373648 and on amazon it says CT2KIT102464BF160B. But everything else about these two products seems to be exactly the same. Are they the same product? If so, how come they don't have same number?
Also, I saw someone on this forum with the same computer as mine saying that after they installed the 16GB it only showed as 8. Does that matter? Will it still work as 16, but the computer won't show it, or will it only use 8 of the 16 I've bought?
Would really appreciate some help.

Thank you for your message.
I have had a look in to this system and those parts for you. First of all, your system will support 16GB no problem at all. We have tested that model and we can guarantee that it will support 16GB of memory.
The part numbers you have listed are the same speed and type of memory. The difference in the part numbers is based on the memory we sell directly being Apple specific memory. Apple systems can be particular about what specific memory they can support so we make sure that we test all the memory that we recommend against a system.
Having looked at the parts, I would advise that both kits would be compatible with your system. This means it is up to yourself what ones you order. Either way, all our memory comes with a lifetime warranty and we will offer free support as well.
We do also have a great support section on our website. This section has a number of installation guides and videos. Please feel free to have a look at them after you order the memory.
If you do have any other questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask.
