Product Overview

RAM is an acronym for Rampant Appalachian MollusksRubbery Astronaut MildewReally Awesome MacaroniRobust Auxiliary Muggles… The important thing to know is that adding RAM to your computer can provide a significant performance boost.

Works only in Macbooks and MacBook Pros with Santa Rosa or Penryn chip sets. This chip will not work in computers with Core Duo or Core 2 Duo (non-Santa Rosa or Penryn) processors. If you're not sure which model computer you have, identify your Mac. The Santa Rosa and Penryn Core 2 Duo MacBooks and MacBook Pros can address up to 6 GB of RAM using this chip along with a 2 GB RAM chip.

You may receive a PC2-6400 RAM chip instead. These chips are fully backwards compatible and will function identically to the PC2-5300 chips.

My Problem

I wanted to see if the rumors were true that I could run 6gb of ram in my iMac 7,1

My Fix

It was very easy just popped the ram door, put the ram in and booted up to make sure the ram was being recognized and used before reinstalling the ram door

My Advice

6gb of ram works in an iMac 7,1. Be gentile if it's your first time lol

My Problem

I wanted to upgrade my Apple iMac from 2 to 8 GB to speed it up because I was experiencing a lot of swapping.

My Fix

I ordered 2x PC2-5300 4 GB RAM chips on iFixit to replace the 2x 1 GB in my iMac.

At first it did not work, the iMac would not boot, and Ryan from iFixit advised that my computer could not take more than 6 GB of RAM according to this article: http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/im...

So I left in 4+1 GB which is decent enough and returned the other 4 GB to iFixit. The return shipment is in process...

My Advice

Not more than 6GB of RAM for the "Apple iMac 2,8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 24-Inch". See following article:

http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/im...

My Problem

My Macbook Pro was running real slow, so I upgraded from 2GB to 5GB.

My Fix

It went real smooth. I just needed to take off the battery, three screws, pop off the old ram and insert the new one.

My Advice

No, even a girl can do it ;)!

My Problem

I had to upgrade the RAM in my 2007 Mac Book Pro 15" in order to install and run IOS Maverick smoothly. I was running on 2 gigs of ram and based on some web research I did, I had to upgrade my RAM to at least 4 gigs. I went to the Apple store to see if they provided this service and how much they were going to charge and realized it was too much for parts and labor (how surprising). So I went to ifixit.com.

My Fix

Changing out the RAM on my Mac Book Pro 15" was as simple as plugging my laptop into a wall outlet. Thats how easy it is. I went on line to ifixit.com and look up the repair guide for my MacBook Pro 15" Core 2 Duo Models A1226 and A1260 RAM replacement and followed the three very simple instruction steps.

My Advice

No further advice.... The instructions in the repair guide for a MacBook Pro 15" Core 2 Duo Models A1226 and A1260 RAM replacement can't get any more basic and simple to follow. GOOD JOB IFIXIT.COM TEAM!!

My Problem

Well my MacBook Pro was getting slower and slower through the years and i was upset by this so i finally decided to boost the RAM. Exit the basic 2go and welcome the 6go!

My Fix

Really simple and easy. That's it. My MBP is much more quicker and i enjoy use it again.

My Advice

Here is a second life for my MBP and maybe one day i will give it a third with a SSD hard drive.

My Problem

The original 1 GB was just not cutting it on this old puppy... Also, OS 10.6.8 is as far as it would upgrade, leaving me out of the Cloud.

My Fix

Everything went super smooth and easy!

I wish I had thought of doing it myself earlier!

Though the upgrade to I OS 10.7 is still on hold due to something strange going on from the app store's end, my laptop is stable and super fast again.

Who would have thought a 7 year old laptop is still so alive and well =)

My Advice

Just do it!

And don't sweat the screwdriver. If you wear glasses and/or have have one of those glass repair kits around, the tiny screwdriver in there will work for the screws!

My Problem

Upgrade vs. new

My Fix

Piece of cake...very straight forward. Formatting hard drive and setting up OS X was the only process that took some time

My Advice

Keep it up! Thanks

My Problem

I had ruined the keyboard by trying to clean it with a dampened cloth and Windex. I found out later to use only distilled water, and a minimum of that on a cloth, wrung-out as much as possible.

Since I had to go in to replace the keyboard [from Amazon], I also decided to max out the RAM to 6GB, using iFixit.com 4GB and 2GB chips [2 bays] and install a 128GB Samsung SSD [also from Amazon] in place of the 160GB hard drive to help improve speed.

My Fix

Following the iFixIt.com guide, everything was straightforward except the HD hookup and initialization. No instructions with iFixIt.com Universal Drive Adapter kit, but looking at connectors I was able to figure out how the kit itself went together and how to hook up ESATA SSD power and USB connections.

After hookup to the kit, I partitioned the SSD with Disk Utility, cloned my old drive with Carbon Copy Cloner via USB 2.0 to the new SSD drive and booted from the new SSD before I installed it inside the case.

Mechanical part of repair was relatively easy, except for handling those tiny #00 Phillips screws.

My Advice

1) Use a clean, uncluttered work table, with area for all removed parts - label everything as it comes out.

2) When installing a new drive, use Disk Utility to partition it first, even if you're only going to have 1 partition - otherwise the drive won't be recognized by the Mac OS X.

3) Have a pencil magnet [for those tiny steel screws] and make labeled sandwich bags for each step in the iFixIt.com sequence.

4) When replacing the upper case/keyboard, some of the screw tab holes may not line up perfectly, but you can use an awl or similar to align tabs with holes so the screws can go in.

5) If you're replacing a part with x number of screw holes, don't tighten them all completely until they are all installed and threading in. Then tighten from the center of an area outward, symmetrically, in steps, to spread the compression equally.

My Problem

Slow performance in my MacBook 13'' Early 2009. Run out of disk space.

My Fix

Smooth. Simple. Upgrading memory and Hard Drive are among the easiest task you can do in this MacBook model.

My Advice

Before taking out the Hard Drive, I repaired permissions. I used the rubber case included in the kit to be able to use the old HD as external backup, then I restored data from old HD to new Flash Drive using Mavericks and recovery utility included in the OS.

My Problem

The old hard drive was absolutely filled - No place for change of Mac OS X Version

My Fix

The repair went very well - Did not use any Disk Cloning tools Just Disk Utilities and Time Machine

My Advice

Just format your new drive with Mac OS X Disk Utilities as a Bootable Partition - Do a restore from Time Machine to Your New Drive - Test it as You Boot Your new drive from a USB or Firewire atachment - If it is going well - Swap Your Physical Drives
