RAM Upgrade to more than 16Gb?

My new top of the line (maximum options MBPro) struggles more to cope with large files and edits in Lightroom than my old one.

Can the RAM be further increased to more than 16Gig?

Sadly, you're not the first to need more than 16 GB of RAM.

You might want to look at freeing up as much space on your internal SSD storage as you can as I'm sure you are running lean on free space. That way your system will be able to leverage it for virtual RAM. For storage of your work get a Thunderbolt external RAID drive (SSD if you can swing it).

If you didn't buy the upgrade from Apple, no.

If Apple didn't make that option, no.

This machine has ZERO upgradeability. All upgrades must be purchased upfront and requires Apple providing the option in the first place.

There was no option of more RAM available

The only option was to get the larger SSD storage which would have helped a bit.

Apple, in its infinite wisdom, is telling you that you don't need more RAM.

There is nothing wrong with your Macintosh.

Do not attempt to adjust the picture.

We are contolling the transmission .

If we wish to make it louder we will bring up the volume.

Is we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper.

We will control the horizontal.

We will control the vertical.

We can roll the image. etc., etc

We will control all you see and hear
