    Just got a refurbed mid-2012 MBP. I do intense photo processing and 4GB RAM was not going to cut it. I feared the 8GB limit that Apple says this machine has. But when I saw that Crucial had 16GB available I had to try it. I've used Crucial RAM other times in the past. So I felt confident that this would work. And it did. Now I have a screaming MBP with 16GB of lightening fast RAM. It was easy to install and when I fired up the machine and checked in Info there it was, reading all 16GB. Thanks Crucial.

    The 32GB upgrade for the late 2012-2013 27" iMac caused my computer to have kernel panics and sudden, improper restarts usually after waking up from a sleep. Once I realized this was from my new and recently installed Crucial RAM I investigated the issue and instantly found many posts and reviews stating the exact problem with the same equipment.

    If it's an OS incompatibility I hope Crucial finds a way to adjust because Apple most definitely doesn't care if 3rd party RAM works with their products.

    And it's a shame because Crucial had the best price and quality reviews I had seen. Sorry I had to return it, but it just doesn't work.

    I upgraded from 2x2gb to 2x8gb ram and now my MBP 2012 is so fast. Totally worth the purchase, however a price around $100 would be even better. Anyways, it's much economical to upgrade the ram rather than buying a new laptop.

    Helped my MacBook Pro work like it was brand new

    By Garrett

    from Austin, TX

    Comments about Crucial 16GB Kit (2 x 8GB) DDR3L-1600 SODIMM Memory for Mac:

    After running on 4 GB for most of the life of my 2012 MacBook Pro, my computer hit a point where it was taking four to five minutes to open Microsoft Excel. I also needed to be able to run the Adobe Creative Suite, and again faced long load times and incredible lag in the performance. I ordered this 16 GB kit from Crucial, it arrived in time and was incredibly easy to install. Since then, my computer is back to running almost better than when I got it.

    For my model specifically (Mid-2012, 2.5 GHZ Intel Core i5), Apple lists that you can only upgrade to 8 GB. HOWEVER, it recognizes all 16 GB since my upgrade, so go ahead and give yourself that extra processing power if you're thinking about it.

    I had issues with my mac being very slow because I leave a lot of tabs open due to multiple emails, school and work websites being up and this new RAM is so much nicer than my standard 4gb RAM.
