Im­prove your Mac

Trans­form your Mac with sim­ple hard­ware up­grades for bet­ter per­for­mance

Mac Format - - CONTENTS -

Any­thing other than brand new, and your Mac might feel a bit more slug­gish than it did when you took it out of the box. And, es­pe­cially if it’s an older ma­chine, there’s al­ways the chance that it might strug­gle to run the most re­cent op­er­at­ing sys­tems and soft­ware.

Hap­pily, those older ma­chines are of­ten ac­tu­ally the eas­i­est and most re­ward­ing to up­grade, though new ones can be boosted in un­ex­pected ways, too.

But what up­grades should you get to give your new Mac a fresh lease of life? Where can you spend your money to get the best re­turn on your in­vest­ment? And isn’t this sort of thing ex­pen­sive and com­pli­cated? Don’t worry; as al­ways, MacFor­mat is here to help!

Over the next few pages we’ll ex­plain what the op­tions are for up­grad­ing your Mac to help it run faster and more smoothly, store more and last longer. Most things are pretty cheap and easy to do – though if you’re ner­vous, find an Ap­ple Au­tho­rised Ser­vice Provider who can do the up­grade for you through lo­cate.ap­ple.com/uk/en. (Note that Ap­ple Stores don’t do this kind of ser­vice.)

For as lit­tle as a few quid you can give your beloved old Mac (and even your iOS de­vice!) a turbo-charge. So grab a screw­driver – we’re go­ing in!
