Memory, or RAM, is one of the few components that you can customize when you buy most Macs. If you’re running out of money, your Mac may be sluggish. Here’s how much RAM your Mac has.
First, click on the “Apple”
In the window that appears, click the Memory tab for a detailed look at your Mac’s memory.
In a box in the upper left corner of the window you will see a number indicating the total amount of RAM currently installed. It reads something like “8 GB installed”.
Below that you will see information about how many memory slots your Mac has and what memory modules are installed in each. This page also shows exactly what type or types of RAM modules your Mac is using. For example, this particular Mac uses 1600 MHz DDR3 memory modules.
If you think you need more RAM, the best thing about the Memory tab in the About This Mac window is that it has a link to a webpage that Apple explains exactly what to do to upgrade . Just click on “Storage Update Instructions” and you will be automatically directed to the website in a web browser.
When you’re done, just close the About This Mac window and you’ll learn more about your Mac, which is always good.
