The new 2011 MacBooks may state a limit of 8GB when it comes to installing memory, but that hasn't stopped OWC from blowing away those perceptions with the introduction of 8GB SODIMMS. Installable alongside a 4GB module for a total of 12GB, or purchased in pairs for a total of 16GB of memory, OWC claims that owners can double the amount of installed memory, but the modules are probably out of your budget. OWC's 12GB DDR3 1333MHz Memory Upgrade Kit will set you back $879.99, and OWC's 16GB DDR3 1333MHz Memory Upgrade Kit costs an amazing $1599.99.
