Updating ram on new macbook pro
Much has been said about the cost, trade-offs, and compromises involved with purchasing Apple’s new Mac Book Pro.
Apple unveiled the device, which comes in three new iterations, yesterday at a press event, and people pouring over its spec sheets and purchase options have complained that its limiting 16GB memory option is severe given the price tag.
All this activity needs to go into the RAM before the CPU can process it.
When the Mac runs out of RAM it starts using the hard drive as ram. You'll start to see the spinning wheel on screen and the Mac freeze.
Added up, wait times increase to hours lost when totaled over the course of just a week.
None of us here have that kind of time to waste, do you?
You wont reach top speed, and your car will wear out fast. In many cases with both i Macs and Mac Book Pros you can exceed the official stated maximum RAM Memory amount as initially determined by Apple. In most cases the higher density module was release after the i Mac or Mac Book Pro and Apple never retroactively updates their upgrade information. Choose any 2011 Mac Book Pro; any screen size, any CPU speed, any model identifier for a 2011 Mac Book Pro, whether be an early or late 2011, the official stated amount of RAM Memory these devices can take is 8gb (2x4gb module).
But Schiller’s reply does point a more concrete finger at battery life, which Apple tends to prioritize over other benefits in its notebook lines.

If you find that it takes the latest OS a long time to load or your spreadsheets are taking minutes before they are ready to use, then you should consider swapping out your old spinning HDD for an SSD.
SSDs will run up to 12 times faster then a HDD and will have the OS loading and ready to use within seconds instead of minutes.
