    Ram Upgrade?
    Greetings! I just got my first Mac, a new Imac 27". The display is gorgeous. It comes with 4 GB of memory. My Imac seems plenty fast except for starting apps. Also, I tend to have many apps open. Sometimes it is VERY slow at rebooting. I plan to buy this:

    8GB Kit (4GBx2), 204-pin SODIMM, DDR3 PC3-10600 upgrades for Apple iMac 2.7GHz Intel Quad-Core i5 (27-inch - DDR3) Mid 2011 Desktop/PC, CT2109102 from Crucial.com

    My question is, will this give me a total of 8 GB or 12?

    For the price of this upgrade this seems like a no brainer. Your comments and suggestions are welcome. Will this added memory help remedy these 'problems'?

    I also have a Windows app that I need to use. How to do?

    My Imac experience has been quite fun so far. LOVE the display! Thanks!

    Specs:
    27" iMac i5, 3.2 GHz, iPad 3, iPhone 5c, iPhone 6+, 3 iPods, El Capitan
    There are four memory slots on the new iMacs. The top two are populated with 2 x 2 GB modules. The bottom two slots are empty. Adding the 2 x 4 GB modules should give you a total of 12 GB.

    As for running Windows on your iMac, see our Sticky post at the top of the "Running Windows........." forum.

    I hoped you would say that : )
