I want to upgrade my Early 2011 15 inch MacBook Pro. I have been thinking about this for a while now and before (some months ago) crucial website used to show 16GB kit as a compatible upgrade but now it's only the 8GB kit.
Is it only because it's out of stock or is there a technical reason to it?
Thanks in advance.
