Just like any other computer, older Macs will begin to show their age at some point. Macs might never be quite as upgradable as PCs, but it’s a myth that you’re stuck with what you buy when you walk out of an Apple Store (or buy online). So all is not lost; with some small, and mostly affordable, upgrades you can revitalise an old Mac and also give a newer Mac a bit of a boost. Don’t know where to start with opening up your Mac? No problem! Our expert fitting guides will show you how to do it the right way. And if you’re in need of some buying advice, we take a look at some of the best drives, RAM modules and other great upgrades for your Mac model. You can even save the cost of this issue when you buy a hardware upgrade from our friends at ifixit.com!
Also, if you’ve got a new Mac or iOS device for the new year – or if you’re short on app inspiration – we’ve collated 33 of the best free apps and show you why you need to be using them. And, talking of apps, if you enjoy creative writing we’ve got a full guide on inklewriter, the brand new app for creating your own interactive adventure stories. Let your imagination go wild in 2015!
