    I have MacBook 13 in from mid 2009 with OS X 10.6.8. I'm thinking about installing OS Maverick but I'm not sure I have enough RAM available for it. It says I need 2GB +, but I have only 2 GB available. Can somebody tell me if this is enough?? Thanks!!

    Technically it will work.

    Also know, that your Mac supports 8 GB of RAM via two 4 GB 204-pin DDR3 SO-DIMM RAM modules, they should cost around 80 €.
    You could also just get one 4 GB module and add another one later.

    Btw, if you have a lot of beachballs, it is often an indication of not enough RAM.

    Upgrading RAM is a simple and easy procedure on Macs, particularly the laptop lines. Follow the link that the previous replier provided and you should be good. Ask any if you have any more questions or have an issue.

    Thanks for help. Looks like it's better to invest in some RAM... Looks simple, so worth trying ;)
