    Ok well i been contimplating getting a mac pro for music production, as i dont do it as often as i used to so i decided to just possibly upgrade the ram.

    2 questions:

    1 how much ram can the imac hold and which ram type should i buy? and will i see a decent bump in performance, this imac has the i3 processor in it mid2010

    last question:

    Ive had mouse issue movement

    I have a logi g500 on in it right now, i am mainly a windows user, just does not feel smooth and it always bugs the hell out of me. Anyone know any fixes on that issue?

    16GB is the max RAM for your model. You can find exact specs, including RAM specs by visiting www.EveryMac.com.

    You can have a maximum of 16GB RAM in your iMac, but upgrading to an SSD would give it an even larger boost. The Samsung 840 Evo is pretty good.

    For the mouse, when scrolling, it just tends to feel rough, even with an Apple mouse. I use a trackpad for smooth scrolling.
