RAM

Mac Format - - MASTER YOUR MAC -

The more RAM you have, the bet­ter. One rea­son that Macs can run slowly is be­cause apps and pro­cesses con­sume lots of RAM, leav­ing lit­tle for the oth­ers. But RAM is ex­pen­sive, and adding it after you’ve bought a Mac is be­com­ing dif­fi­cult. The next best op­tion? Min­imise how much you use. Don’t keep lots of apps run­ning if you’re not us­ing them, and close Sa­fari tabs. Use Ac­tiv­ity Mon­i­tor to iden­tify apps that are hog­ging your RAM and then quit them.
