I have a 2009 13" 2.26 GHz MacBook Pro w/ 2 GB RAM. I do a lot of music editing and I use VST plugins (RAM hogs). And the MacBook is laggy as hell, my songs won't play or render properly. Will adding RAM (2GB->4GB, no money for 8GB) solve the problem? You don't have to read this part: The thing is everything works just fine on my parents' 2.0 GHz iMac w/ 4GB memory but I went away to college, so I wanted a small laptop. I decided to buy the base MacBook Pro and spend the rest of my money on a new audio interface and upgrade the RAM in the future, if needed (better specs than the iMac after the upgrade) - but now, I'm seriously considering just selling the MacBook. I don't live in the US, so I couldn't try it before buying - but all the reviews (CNET, Gizmodo etc. + Amazon) were saying 'it's faster, it's cheaper, it's awesome!', so I gave it a shot. Turns out, 'faster' doesn't mean 'fast' and also, too many regular joes can now buy MacBook 'Pro's'. Why is the MacBook even called pro? As far as I remember, 5 years ago there was an actual difference between iBooks and MacBook Pro's... The only pro thing about my laptop is its name. Other than that, it's slow as F*CK. What are your thoughts?
