I updated the OS to Maverick (coming from snow leopard). Consequently all the 4 GB of RAM memory are now occupied by the system (snow leapard only used 2 GB) and probably this is the reason why the iMac became much slower. However this iMac can be handle 8 GB. Does anyone know if this configuration has standard 1* 4Gb or 2*2GB RAM. I know you will say just open de iMac and look but can anyone tell me what the policy of Apple is or what they observed in their iMac ? Probably 2* 2 Gb so you have to exchange both memory cards right ?
