The IT Guys specialise in Mac-Mini Upgrades and Mac Mini Repairs across Perth with repairs carried out by Apple Certified Technicians.
If your Mac-mini already has 8GM of RAM or more, and still has its original disk drive (HDD) the biggest performance increase will come by replacing the HDD (Hard Disk Drive) with a super-fast SSD (Solid State Drive)
Solid State Drives (SSDs) have no working parts so you can read and write data to and from them very quickly and come with a 3 or 5 year warranty.
Think of them as a very large USB Thumb drive or Flash Drive. They use the same technology.
SSD‘s range in size from 120 GB to 4000 GB (4 TB). Most commonly pre-installed HDD are 500 GB to 1 TB in size.
Depending on the model of your Apple computer, upgrades are available and we are more than happy to provide a written quotation.
Most Mac Minis can be upgraded with more RAM (memory)
Most early Mac Mini’s were shipped with as little as 512 MB of RAM (Internal Memory for running programs) new Mac’s are now supplied with either 8 or 16 GB, this is the amount of memory Apple recommends for their latest operating systems such as Mojave, High Sierra or Catalina and a warning here, if you wish to upgrade to the latest operating systems your Mac will need a MINIMUM of 4GB RAM
Depending on the age of your Mac you can upgrade RAM up to 64 GB but it varies per model. Follow the instructions above and enter your serial number, this will give you the full Mac specs and the Maximum RAM you can upgrade to.
Another way of finding out the type of RAM your computer supports is the click on “About This Mac” -> “Memory” this will show the type of RAM installed and the number of RAM slots available.
RAM for Mac Mini’s varies in price from model to model but is generally around $75 for 4 GB plus installation cost. For an accurate quotation, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your Mac serial number.
Upgrading the RAM on your iMac will make your programs run faster, especially if you are running more than one application at a time.
Upgrading RAM on your iMac will not increase your startup time or the performance of applications that access the HDD a great deal such as databases and video editing.
