RAM (random access memory) is crucial to making all your programs run fast, especially if you design, do photoshop, or video edit. CNET is a staple for technology news and guidance, and I found this great article on RAM and what apple machines are upgradeable to top tier performance. By that I mean, the brand new precious is the Mac Pro with Retina Display.
Sure the display is really nice, but something to drool over other than pretty pixels is the capability to put 16gb of RAM into a laptop to make it really fast. Yes, true beauty is on the inside. On Apple’s site, you can only upgrade the Retina Mac to 16 gb, all other models are only allowed to 8 gb (retina mac upgrade screen below)
However, as you will learn in the CNET article, there are a lot of Mac laptops that can be boosted to 16gb. If your interested, then the start of the article is below, and just click on the image or link to go to read the rest of the article. Below that is a link on where to buy the RAM and not pay $600, but $160 instead, finally ending with an install video from Other Worldly Computing which shows you scaredy cats how easy it is to do. FYI, I’m also available to do it for you for $400, New York trip money, but come on, it’s more fun if you do it yourself.
