How to add more RAM, SSD(currently 4GB and HD), frequent beachballin
I'm a newbie here, ready to take steps in upgrading my old MacBook Pro 13in 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo. It is mid 2009 model A1278. I had always had issues with it, and even apple care replaced hard drive twice in the first year. later it acted up but being out of warranty, they did not help. So I went with another repair shop, who upgraded my memory from 2 to 4GB. Now, 2 years later, my machine is getting ver slow, lot of beach balls and freezing, force quitting etc. I depend on this machine for work everyday. How and where do I add this new RAM(what type), and is it worth also either swapping for a new SSD or adding it to optical drive? Will the comp get a little faster? Do i replace the two 2GB RAMs for two 4GB? or for one 2GB and one 4GB? Are there specific types? Also with SSD, is there specific size or type I need? How would I then move all my work and system on the new SSD?
Is this a good question?
