Hi!

This is my laptop:
Model Name:MacBook Pro
Model Identifier:MacBookPro12,1
Processor Name:Intel Core i5
Processor Speed:2,7 GHz
Number of Processors:1
Total Number of Cores:2
L2 Cache (per Core):256 KB
L3 Cache:3 MB
Memory:8 GB
Lately, I've realized 8GBs of RAM is getting pushed to far between Parallels and other apps.:( Is it expensive to upgrade the RAM (I'm thinking of doing it myself if you don't say the contrary)? How much could I fit and what/where should I buy?

Thanks!

The 12,1 is a retina model. You cannot upgrade your RAM, it is soldered onto the mainboard.

Should've done a bit of research before buying.
