mikekouk, for some reason my original message can't be posted, but I haven't installed my 8GB chips yet. However, my machine is quite different from yours (4GB, slower processor etc.); you'll want to check with those whose machines match your specs exactly. Hope this helps.

I am having a macbook pro (mid 2012) 2.5 GHz Intel core i5 model. It comes with the standard 4gb RAM. The system goes really slow when i use multiple apps like MATLAB, Adobe PS/LR, etc. Can I upgrade it with a 16gb RAM?

Thank you for contacting us today. It appears that your system can be upgraded to 16GB of RAM. The compatible upgrade for your system can be found here. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

I have the same MBP (mid 2012, 2,5 ghz i5, 4gb), and also thinking about upgrading to 16gb.
I've checked the link you gave (the compatible upgrade - this one), but could not find this in my country.
However, found another one, with the same speed and CL. But just to make it sure, could you check this link for me please?
I know, the language of the site is not english, but you can see the specs on the right.
Thank you in advance!

I have a MacBook Pro, 2.5 GHz, Intel Core i5, Mid 2012 with 4GB RAM at 1600 MHz DDR3, and have a couple of questions:
1. I suppose I can upgrade to 16GB no problem, right? Will my laptop fully run at 16GB RAM or it will only reach the max celing at 8GB?
2. When I get the upgrade, should I look for the one with 1600 MHz speed or I have to get the 1333. Is it worth it getting the 1600?
3. I have the apple care program for 3 years. I have only spend my 1st year and the question is, if something happens to my laptop and I have to take it for service, if before doing so I remove the upgrade and put back the original 4GB memory, is there any way that the apple people can find out I have been using this upgrade and therefore void the rest of the warranty?

This is perhaps an older topic, but I thought I would add my experience. I ran fine with my Mid 2012 and 16GB of Crucial RAM for 2.5 years....until I had to have the logic board on my MBP replaced due to a GPU issue. The new logic board goes into kernel panic when I have both sticks of RAM installed. Initially I thought it was a bad RAM module (because that's what the store told me, and I verified that installing the second module prevented the system from booting), but the replacement had the same issue. I also tried swapping the two RAM modules and had the same problem: 1 stick good, 2 sticks bad.
Because Apple doesn't officially support 16GB RAM in these models, and because it boots fine with 2x4GB of Apple RAM, Apple will not see this as a problem. This despite the fact that both Crucial modules work just fine on their own and that they worked fine as a pair in my old board.
So, your mileage may vary. It should work, but if it doesn't then you don't really have any recourse with Apple.
