    You can find the instructions here.

    It doesn't invalidate the warranty (unless you damage something while carrying out the upgrade).

    Thanks. But is that the correct memory I should use? I'm sure it's easy to install I'm just not sure which one to buy.

    The colored pinwheel usually has to do with hard drive activity rather than RAM.

    Are you actually running out of RAM? Your slowdowns could be due to something else entirely. I'd monitor your memory usage in Activity Monitor before plopping down some hard earned money on an upgrade you may not even need.

    Go with crucial if you want, crucial website should tell you exact ram model you require, definitely go with 8gb ram total.
    Also consider SSD hard drive, this hd upgrade will not harm your warranty, ram and hd upgrade is your birthright, Apple will not void it.
