...or should I just put that money toward a new computer for down the road? Right now it has 4 GB RAM. I notice my computer seems a bit slower and I do get the beach ball a little more often; I'm wondering if that's due to the RAM in my computer. I'm running OS X Mavericks. Very happy with the computer, and not sure if it's worth updating the RAM or just leaving it as is for now and putting the money toward a new MBP/MBA/Apple computer of some sort in the future. TIA!
