Replacing RAM (MacBook early 2008 White)

by Mario

My Problem

After the OS upgrade (10.7.5) the system begun requiring more memory (for no real reason actually) so I decided to buy more RAM to speed up the browser, email client, skype conversations and my dev VMs. The improvement allow me to keep my VMs on and talk on skype while browsing.

My Fix

Smooootly. I took less than 10 minute. Nothing exploded.

My Advice

Do it! Worth it definitely, though the biggest improvement will be updating the HD with an SSD.
