    The maximum RAM for a Macintosh has always depended on the machine model, not the OS.

    Whether or not the OS will use all or part of the installed RAM will depend on again, the machine and the OS installed.

  • It depends on how many memory slots in the model of Mac. Mac Pros may be configured with 32 GB, but MacBook pros are limited to 8. Look at the tech specs of the model, or select one in the store and see how much memory you can add. Mac should be capable of using more.
