    leopard supports 64-bit natively, so it means, yes, 64-bit software can use more than 4GB of RAM. too bad if its 32-bit

    technically, santa rosa can run 8 gigs. santa rosa penryn mbps have been tested to succesfully run 6 gigs. 8 gigs though can be problematic, possibly because the mbp adds the gpu ram to the equation. not sure if santa rosa merom runs more than 4 but likely considering santa rosa penryn does.

    cheers!

    Nvidia said their chipset supports 36-bit memory addressing so it is a matter of whether Apple implements this on the hardware (ie electrical traces to at least 35 lines of addressing). It would not be long before someone tests this out. I am almost sure the Apple engineers would not skimp on a few address lines!.

    Leopard is 64-bits and supports more than 4GB and so does XP64 and Vista64. The rest of the 32-bit guest OS can only take less.

    Wala kasing available na SODIMM of 4GB & 8GB density when they intially published the numbers.

    Samsung recently announced 8GB and 16GB memory modules so expect them by 2009/2010/2011.

    THere's a certain point when capacity speeds up a process and when efficient coding and faster overall system speed plays a roll again,
