RAM is like the belly, the storage space of your computer. The fuller it gets the slower your Mac performance will become. While there can be many factors that can have a negative effect on your computers processing speed, heavy clogged up storage space is a notorious one.
Luckily, compared to repairing damaged code left behind after a virus attack, freeing up space is a breeze, especially if you have a leading Mac cleaning software onboard to help.
You can clean up virtual debris manually, but unless you are prepared to take hours to fine comb your entire system, searching for old forgotten documents and folders, tricky duplicate content, lurking trace files left behind from removed softwares and successfully delete unwanted apps and programs, I would recommend investing in a software.
Top leading Mac cleaners are safe enough and intelligent enough to decipher between important and cherish data compared to worthless unwanted ones. This is crucial as I would hate for your wedding photos or important work contracts to get scrapped. Yikes! Some Mac cleaners on the market are not optimized in this vital department and can be lazy, causing heart aching mistakes. So Before you download one to do some thorough deep cleaning to free up echoing caverns of storage space, be sure to do a little research behind the software in question.
While a deep spring cleanse is always my first port of call whenever one of my Mac computers starts misbehaving, if you have already done one and seen no improvements, there is one drastic space relieving option that can provide a mass surge in speed – updating your RAM.
Buying and adding on more RAM onto your Mac can be the most costly option but it will give your tired Mac more breathing space to minoover your commands and help get back that snappy signature Apple speed.
If you are a hoarder at heart and can’t bear to be without any of your downloaded softwares, apps and saved documents, than upgrading your RAM will will give you oodles more space to continue doing what you love – downloading the latest apps, iTunes, moves, photos etc with no nasty side effects on performance.
If you are dapper with a screwdriver and know exactly what you are looking at when staring into the insides of your MacBook, then by all means shave the cost of this operation down by installing the extra RAM yourself. But if you are a cautious folk like me, then I strongly recommend you let an Apple expert do it. You can usually book your beloved Mac into your nearest Apple shop, or if you live out in the sticks you can have have it posted.
Upgrading your RAM is usually a sure way to stop Mac running slow syndromes and get back that Apple signature speed!
