Mac Format - - FEATURE -

In­creas­ing the me­mory in your Mac will of­ten make the big­gest dif­fer­ence, and is rel­a­tively cheap – es­pe­cially if you’re cur­rently run­ning on 4GB, which is prob­a­bly too tight for

com­fort. Check the Me­mory tab in > About This Mac or use the Sys­tem Scan­ner at uk.cru­ to iden­tify the type of me­mory your com­puter re­quires. Bear in mind that not all Macs can have their

me­mory up­graded. In re­cent MacBooks it’s sol­dered on to the moth­er­board, so you’re stuck with the fac­tory-sup­plied chips. The same is true of the late 2014 Mac mini. Avoid mix­ing dif­fer­ent me­mory types – par­tic­u­larly in the Mac Pro, where you shouldn’t com­bine UDIMMs and RDIMMS – and wher­ever pos­si­ble re­place all of the me­mory in one go, fill­ing the slots with mod­ules of equal size.
