I have 4GB ram and about 290 GB memory left. does the amount of memory make the computer go faster or it is only depend on RAM? I use the mac pro for school stuff like writing essays, surfing web, and sometimes photoshop CS4. one thing that I noticed is that the time is takes to turn on and off is almost 30 seconds, which is kinda annoying especially when you are in school and you need to hurry to your next class. will upgrade to 8 RAM decrease the time is takes to shut off? also, how do I add another 4 GB of RAM? im scarred to do it my self because the inside of a mac looks very complicated. is there any cheap services I can use? or if I do it myself, is there a very detailed step by step dummy proofed guide that I can use?
