I have a macbook pro 13" mid 2009 model
Currently i have a 2 gb ram ddr3 1067mhz (1+1) the basic one which came along with computer..
I use parallels sometimes and i have noticed that my computer becomes significantly slower
i open activity monitor and in system monitor is mainly only yellow and red when parallels runs..
I wanted to know if i should upgrade my ram to the max capacity 8 gb (4+4) or not?
in short, will upgrading ram help parallels and mac run side by side faster
Also i was made to understand that different companies offer RAM 'sticks' (dont exactly know whether its called sticks or slots or whatever)..
Which one would be best for my computer?
apple charges a bomb i heard
others are better and cheaper too
