    There's an easy way to check. When you have your application opened and are experiencing performance issues, open Activity Monitor (Applications => Utilities). Look at System Memory tab. If you see lots of green in the pie chart, you've got more than enough memory. If the other colors dominate the pie chart, you'll probably want to add some more.

    More information about reading the Activity Monitor.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
