    Okay So I am about to bump up my ram...
    I have a 09 mid or late... I don't know which one;
    Specs on it now,
    13.3" 2.26ghz, 2gigs of ddr3 ram and a 160gig hd...
    And it is not cutting it for me.
    This is what I am looking at doing to it. Will this work and run good?

    Hi,

    Go with the 8GB RAM upgrade - I did this to my MacBook recently and it has helped a lot.
    Secondly - why not spend a little more and buy an SSD for the HDD upgrade? You will see a huge speed boost (More than the RAM upgrade) from it! :cool:

    Even 4GB + SSD will be faster than 8GB + Normal HDD.

    Thank you for the fast response, I will take this into consideration before I do buy. Also I am about to buy a new motorcycle so i am trying to save where I can.

    Also I am looking for more space, I don't want to get a 120gig ssd for the more than a 500gig hdd.
