upgrading RAM on MacBook Pro

Found 16th JulEdited by:"YouMuppet"
Hi, I have a Late 2011 MacBook Pro 13" and I recently upgraded the OS to High Sierra and now it has slowed down drastically.

Start up takes forever and when opening apps they take a while to open and sometimes they'll freeze for a bit.

It has 2x 2GB sticks installed and I'm looking to upgrade those to 2x 4GB (8GB) but I'm not sure which brand and where to get?

Can anybody point me in the right direction and recommend a fair price to pay for them? Im a bit wary of buying from eBay as i don't know if they'll be genuine, I've seen Samsung branded 2x4GB for £42 on there.

- Double Data Rate Small Outline Dual Inline Memory Module (DDR3) format
- 67.6mm x 30mm (1.18 inch)
- 2 GB or 4 GB
- 204-pin
- PC3-10600 DDR3 1333 MHz type RAM

Crucial are always decent.
While some extra RAM may help I would suspect the problem is the hard disc. Is it the original ? Installing a new OS means that the hard disc is working flat out for 45 minutes and that is usually enough to "kill" a hard disc that is on the way out......

That wlll be why it is taking so long to start up and open apps

Buy an SSD and then get some more RAM.

Another recommendation for Crucial RAM........
