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 am trying to avoid spending a bunch of money on a Mac Pro. My MBP came with 4 GB ram, 10 years ago. I recently heard somewhere it was possible to increase it to 6 MB. I talked with a tech at ifixit.com and found out it was in fact possible. Ordered the part on line (about $95 with shipping).

My Fix

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 . . .

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 ta . . .

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 we . . .

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.

Here is a second life for my MBP and may . . .

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 str . . .

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, . . .

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 . . .
