How Much RAM On My Mac?

           I bought a used Mac months ago and now I am wondering just how much RAM is o that Mac. I think I was told when I bought it, but my own memory fails me. This is more than just a casual curiosity for me because I want to run some applications that are somewhat demanding. Like animations and games. I also want to install Mackeeper because I've heard good things about it, and it requires RAM also. But, is mackeeper legit? Okay, after several hours of research, it seems that Mackeeper is legit and effective.

So, I did some research and it seems pretty simple to find my answer. Just pull up the Apple menu and select About This Mac. A new window will open and almost dead center in that new window will be the Gigabytes, (GB), of RAM memory installed on your Mac. It should also tell you the clock speed of the RAM and the type, like DDR3 for example.

My used Mac has only 2 GB, so I want to add more. Now I need to determine if it's possible to add more RAM. In the same window as we saw above, the 'About This Mac' window), click 'More Info' and a new window will show you in a diagram how many RAM slots your Mac has and what is installed in each slot. Mine has two slots and only one is used by a 2GB RAM card. So, I could just buy one more 2GB RAM card, but all advice I hear says to upgrade with pairs, so I wiil buy two 2GB RAM cards, install them and put the old RAM card in my parts box.


That's it, I'm off to the Apple Store now!

FriendFeed was shut down on April 9, 2015. We maintained the service since we joined Facebook in 2009, but the number of people using FriendFeed had been steadily declining and in the end, the community was just a fraction of what it once was. Given this, we decided that it was time to start winding things down.

We want to thank you all for being such a terrific and enthusiastic community. We're proud of what we built so many years ago, and we recognize that it would have never been possible without your support.
