Upgrades (MB)

Upgrades are a great way to extend the useful life of your Mac. Although we can't cover all of the many upgrade possibilities, we can list the most popular ones. For more information, we point you to Web sites to help you wade through the many choices.

RAM

RAM (or main memory) is the first upgrade you should make to your Mac unless it came with a large amount. RAM is a primary factor in overall system performance and stability. Without enough RAM, a fast CPU, a new graphics card, and other upgrades can't perform at their best. Think of RAM as your computer's oxygen supply. A fast CPU with too little RAM is like a sprinter running with a plastic bag over his head or a Ferrari with a one-pint gas tank.
