I recently upgraded the RAM in my 2010 MBP from 4GB to 8GB and didn't notice any significant performance boosts. Could this mean I have bad RAM? The system works just like it did with 4GB as in the apps still load as slow as before. My system still recognizes the RAM and activity monitor shows it as 7.75GB. The problem is, I don't notice any performance changes. Any way to be sure this is normal or I need to exchange this? BTW this is Crucial RAM I am using Thanks!
