A few months ago my beloved mac kept getting the dreaded “spinning wheel of death” .
Sureit happened whenI had a a few tabs open, but I *needed* pintrest, twitter, facebook all open at once! When I am writing a review, I usually have a tab open for each social media outlet of the product I am reviewing. I didn’t think you could upgrade the memory on an imac because it’s just a monitor – there is no tower, and I didn’t see any slots or openings where I could get inside.
Luckily we did a google search one day and came across a youtube video that explaind how to upgrade your Memory! On the underneath part of the monitor screen there was two tiny screws. Once you took them out you could use a ribbon cable to pull out your memory slots! The video had recommended going to crucial.com and letting them run an online scan of your computer. Once the scan is completed, they recommend how much memory you computer could handle, as well as what type of memory you need.
Turns out I only had 1 GB of Ram and some of the software I had (like photoshop, and the Sims which Tony’s daughter plays on my computer) recommended more! They recommended two, 2GB sticks of ram. With shipping being free it was only about $70 which was far more affordable than other stores online that we checked. As You can see, I now have a total of 4GB ram and I haven’t seen the spinning wheel of death since I upgraded. My computer is so much faster now – it is like a brand new computer!
