I was asked this question today:
Jim, I am buying a MacBook Pro, should I get the 8GB ram upgrade and who should I buy the ram from? Should I Buy the RAM from the Apple Store?
There’s a few questions to answer there so let’s break this down into parts shall we?
Congrats on the MacBook Pro. It’s a powerful computer that will work for you for some time depending on your needs.
Yes, I suggest maxing out the MacBook Pro with as much RAM as you can and for the MBP’s that’s 8GB of RAM and you get there by either buying an 8GB RAM Kit for the MacBook Pro or you buy 2x4GB RAM Upgrades individually, but you will need two of them.
And here’s why I think that you should max out the ram on the MacBook Pro: It’s a professional computer and you’re going to drop at least $1500 to buy the professional laptop computer but you’re on the fence about memory upgrades, which cost a fraction of what you spent on the Apple notebook itself but will offer probably the best value for your computing dollar. As I write this, 8GB for MacBook Pro will set you back about $250 for you to max out your ram and get some work done that will pay the bills. I guess it’s the economy but you’ve just spent a good chunk of change on a notebook but you won’t upgrade the RAM?
