I have a dilemma what to do with my mother’s MacBook. Since the update to the latest operating systems it’s really slow. It is the late 2009, 2,26Ghz core2duo with 2GB RAM and stock 256GB hdd. I could upgrade the hdd to a SSD relatively cheap but is it worth that investment? And will this resolve the issue? Edit: After some extra reading an RAM upgrade might be an cheaper and easier idea. Wil this work? Corsair CM3X8GSDKIT1066 8GB DDR3 SODIMM 1066MHz I know that 6GB is the max so how will this work do i have to get 2gb instead of 4 or can I jus put in 4 and it will use only 2 of that?
