    Cheap, Fast Way to Speed Up Your Mac

    Posted

    I bought a MacBook Pro in 2012 and from the get go, the computer was painfully slow. The dread beach all appeared if I had more than a few things open and opening most apps took minutes. Numerous visits to the Apple Store had me turning up empty handed. I was about to write off Apple completely as my MacBook has next to nothing on it and that performance was unacceptable. I saw this on sale and thought I’d give it a go. My computer came with 4GB from the factory. Wow. Night and day. The computer is fast, responsive, and like brand new. Before you spend the money upgrading to an SSD drive, try upgrading your RAM. It took maybe five minutes and I wish I would have done this years ago.

    I took a chance buying this memory as I'm not a big fan of Corsair memory. I used it in PC's over the years and didn't have the best experience with it. It looks like Corsair memory in iMac's works much better! I installed this memory in my iMac and so far there have been no issues. The iMac responds and performs much better now. The price was also reasonable, which made the decision to take another chance on Corsair that much easier to make. Overall the product performs very well and I'm happy I made the purchase.

    Corsair Memory for MacBook Pro

    I was not sure from all the reviews both good and fair if the Corsair memory was the right choice for my Mac. I took the chance to upgrade and bought 8 megs for my MacBook Pro. I let Best Buy install the memory and they did a great job. The memory upgrade went from 4 to 8 megs and was easily recognized by the computer. Mac works faster already. Will definitely buy from this company again!

    I'm sure it works but not for Mid 2009 5,4

    I've read in reviews that it works and it's also a match for the right type of memory. It fits just fine but sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't so it's not compatible for Macbook pro mid 2009 even though it's the same specs. Unless I just got some bad memory. I'm returning. As I said. The memory might be just fine but just incompatible. So I'll give 3 stars as I'm not sure 100% what issue is.

    My son had a mid 2010 macpro laptop and was complaining about being sluggish. Quick look at Apple support showed how to upgrade Ram from existing 2gb to 4gb..took literally 5 min after finding the ram modules at Best Buy... he can actually run a couple of applications at the same time now. This should hold him until he can actually spring for a iMac desk top with 16gb ram.

    Great upgrade from original 4 GB in my 2009 MBP

    I have a mid-2009 15" MacBook Pro with 4 GB of RAM. I noticed that I was routinely running with less than 1 GB free, and noticed paging when I started a virtual machine or loaded a large program like iPhoto or Lightroom. Since the upgrade my virtual machines and the larger programs start faster. The performance increase was not as noticeable as moving to an SSD drive, but the RAM upgrade was less than 25% of the cost of a new SSD.

    The right memory...

    This 2x4 SoDIMM DDR3 memory kit by Corsair has proven to be a good buy: it has noticeably sped up operations on the computer, and we could not be happier about that. We tried other brands, and they caused either the BSoD (Blue Screen of Death) or did not let the computer even boot up at all. We can thank our local Geek Squad Agent for this recommendation. This Corsair DDR3 RAM was the right memory.

    My 2011 MacBook pro was getting slower after new software updates but lately it started taking so much time in opening a new tab in the browser. I was planning to sell it and even put an ad on craiglist. But then I found this RAM, I thought to give it a try and....my mac is working as when it was new. Must buy for upgrading your mac.
