Apple Mac RAM Memory Upgrades

Adding RAM to your Mac is the best (and normally cheapest) way to upgrade the speed of your Mac. Even with the advanced features of OS X Mavericks, you can never have too much RAM. Switching between apps becomes smoother because there is less "paging" taking place. Paging is what happens when your Mac’s CPU moves data that isn’t in active use to your hard disk in order to free up RAM, and then loads new data into this RAM. Simply put, if you increase the amount of physical RAM in your Mac, this happens less often and it will feel faster.

Unfortunately Apple doesn’t make it possible to upgarde the RAM in a lot of their laptops, including the MacBook Air, Retina MacBook Pro and some 21.5" iMacs. On these Macs, the RAM is installed directly onto the Logic Board. But for most Apple Macs, RAM is available, and Apple even sell it directly to you from their web store. Of course, when they sell it to you, not only is it more expensive than SimplyFixIt, but they also expect you to open your Mac up and fit it yourself.
