Product Overview

Adding RAM to your computer can provide a significant performance boost.

Although Apple reports the maximum RAM for the Early 2008 iMacs and Mid 2009 MacBooks as 4 GB, you can actually install up to 6 GB in these machines. These computers have two available RAM slots. This 2 GB RAM chip can be combined with a 4 GB chip, yielding a total of 6 GB of RAM. Although 8 GB will physically fit, the system will be unstable if 8 GB is installed.

Compatibility

  • 2 GHz (Early 2009) Core 2 Duo MacBooks
  • 2.13 GHz (Mid 2009) Core 2 Duo MacBooks
  • 2.4 or 2.66 GHz (Early 2008) 20" iMacs (EMC No. 2210)
  • 2.8 or 3.06 GHz (Early 2008) 24" iMacs (EMC No. 2211)

My Problem

My iMac's original 250 GB hard drive failed. Since it was a 2008 model, full repair at a service center would cost more than the computer was worth. Aside from the HD, it was in pristine condition & had an Intel processor that could handle the latest version of OSX (Yosemite), so I felt it still had some life in it. I bought a 2 TB drive from IFIXIT and installed it myself. I also upgraded the RAM while I was at it. I'm happy I did it!

My Fix

The repair went well. The overview video and step by step directions are extremely well done - clear & thorough, with tech notes that point out helpful little things that only a full time computer tech would know.

My Advice

I'm detail oriented by nature. Whenever I follow any kind of written or video instructions, I usually find things that could be presented better. You guys do such an impressive job that I have nothing to say but THANKS!

My Problem

We bought our iMac over 6 years ago. I've replaced the optical drive twice and the CPU fan once. Other than that, we've had no problems. Until recently. A few weeks ago, the computer began acting badly...much like I expect computers running Windows to behave. Lagging, randomly closing programs, locking up when asked to do basic tasks, etc. It finally got bad enough for me to do some research on troubleshooting. Disk Utility revealed that the hard drive needed repair. Okay. Did what we could but there was damage that required replacement. To ifixit.com I went. I decided that while I had the computer open anyway, I might as well double my RAM so I went ahead and ordered RAM as well as a HD with 3 times the space as my original.

My Fix

The repair went flawlessly, as each repair I've done using the ifixit guides has gone. The instructions were clear and the pictures clarifying. I did forget that I'd have to format the drive and so was a little disappointed when I first plugged it back in and turned it on. Doh! Once I formatted the drive I used my Time Machine backup to bring my computer back to life. I expect it to run for another 6 years with so few problems that I forget how to troubleshoot. :)

My Advice

Make sure you've got a can of air in your tool bag. Until I open up the computer, I forget how dusty it is in there. While it's open is a great time to blast some of the dust out of there. Also, make sure to be careful with the locating pins on the glass of the iMac. This is the first time I've broken off a pin and I hit it so lightly I didn't even realize I'd bumped it until the pin hit the table. Very, very delicate.

My Problem

He was having issues with his mac being very slow and was running an older OS.

My Fix

I replaced the original 3.5 hdd with a 2.5 ssd and used a hdd adapter. I also installed an optical drive to hdd adapter sold by ifixit and placed a 500gb hdd here. The reason I swapped the two is on this iMac the optical drive is a pata connection (very slow) and the original drive is a sata connection ( very fast). Last I installed 4gb of ram. This machine is now running mavericks OS and is extremely fast. Start to finish was about 3 hours including os download reinstall and data transfer.

My Advice

The best advice to you is do all of your research first. Make sure you read everything before you buy. They will tell you everything on the ifixit.com but you call them if you have questions (very cool people). Also pay attention to each step on teardown, don't get ahead of yourself and you will be fine. Macs are so easy to work on especially when they give you step by step pictures. Ifixit has most everything you need to get the job done but there might be something they don't offer (3.5 to 2.5 hdd adapter).

My Problem

I needed more RAM for my iMac.

My Fix

It was VERY EASY!!! It took about 1 minute.

My Advice

Just follow the iFixit guide.

My Problem

Hard drive was shot and who want to throw out a perfectly good computer when a little "IFIXIT" task can make it like new.

My Fix

The video was a great place to start.. Watched it all twice then used the step-by-step guide for the actual replacement.

My Advice

You could make it a little easier to find the guide on installing the software/partitioning the hard drive.. The only place I found the info was in the replacement guide, nowhere else on your site..or at least I could not find it.. it may be there, but.....

My Problem

After owning an iMac for 5-6 years, the hard drive had filled up, and the times required to boot and open applications were very slow.

My Fix

Ordered up the parts for RAM and hard drive upgrades from iFixit and followed the online instructions, referring back to the video guides as necessary. This took me essentially a full working day -- not the replacement of the physical parts, but the restoration of the software/the desktop. The steps involved in the latter were not intuitive and took lots of poking around the Internet to find what I needed. Nonetheless, I got there in the end.

My Advice

As you go through any procedure in iFixit, follow instructions closely, improvise where you feel you can get away with it, and use Google frequently as you restore your system after replacing physical components.

My Problem

Computor slow had just installed new hard drive, now was the time to finish the upgrade

My Fix

My Advice

My Problem

The original 320GB hard drive completely died after 5 yrs of nearly continuous service. Found the ifixit site with great instructions and the necessary parts.

My Fix

The parts arrived in a few days and the repair was easy and fast. Has the ufixit guide on my iPad and followed the step by step instructions. Finished in less than one hour. Everything booted up fine and was able to reinstall from my Time Capsule.

My Advice

Read the entire repair steps first before proceeding to make sure you have everything.
