Mac Upgrades in Perth, Western Australia

Mac Upgrades available for iMac, Macbook, Mac Mini, Macbook Air

and most Apple Mac Computers – Perth, Western Australia


Most Mac Computers can be upgraded with more memory to make it run like a new model.

Memory can be in the form of RAM or Storage Space such as HDD or SSD

If your computer does not have a minimum of 4MB RAM memory that will need to be upgraded to run the latest operating systems such as Sierra and High Sierra but the biggest performance upgrade is to replace the standard Hard Disk (HDD) with a super fast Solid State Drive (SSD)

Very old models may not be able to be upgraded to the latest Operating System but will still benefit from an increase in memory. Hard Disk Drives (HDD) over 4 years old should be replaced with another HDD or SSD. This alone will give a noticeable performance increase.

To find out if or how much your Apple Computer can be upgraded, you firstly need your computers serial number which can be found on the underside of MacBooks or the base of the stand on iMacs or click on “About this Mac“. Once you have your serial number send an email to support@itguyswa.com and we can then give you a written quote of options that will suit your Apple

Most early Mac’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 High Sierra and Mojave 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 32 GB but it varies per model. 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’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 support@itguyswa.com  with your Mac serial number.

Upgrading the RAM on your Mac will make your programs run faster, especially if you are running more than one application at a time. However it will not increase your startup time or the performance of applications that access the HDD a great deal such as databases and video editing. To increase this speed, upgrade or add a SSD (Solid State Drive).
