- RAM Upgrade
- The original specifications from Apple was that up to 4 GB of RAM is supported in this system, but 100's of our customers have been able to upgrade it to 8GB (4GB +4GB). Choose your RAM modules on the left.
- The only tools you need to open the case are a Phillips #00 Screwdriver. A Medium Anti-static Mat is also recommended. Then follow this guide to install the RAM.
- HDD->HDD / SSD
- By default, this model is configured with a 160GB 2.5-inch hard drive connected to 3Gb/s SATA port. To upgrade the existing 2.5-inch HDD to a larger capacity HDD or high performance SSD, you'll need a Phillips #00 Screwdriver, Torx T6 Screwdriver, and Spudger. You can also buy all of these parts and more in the Essential Electronics Toolkit.
- Follow this guide to install the parts. Plus you’ll need a larger 2.5-inch HDD or 2.5-inch SSD.
- To clone your existing OS/app setup first, purchase a Cloning/Data Transfer Cable or 2.5-inch HDD/SDD enclosure to connect your new SSD to your mac, then use the Super Duper app to perform the clone, then switch the drives. You can keep your old 2.5-inch HDD in the enclosure for external storage.
- HDD + HDD/SSD
- Adding a second drive requires replacement of the existing DVD-drive using this Dual Drive Kit, which also contains all of the required tools and driver bits. Follow this guide to do the installation. And of course, you’ll need a new 2.5-inch HDD or 2.5-inch SSD to go in the new enclosure.
- A Battery replacement is available for this system. See this guide for installation instructions.
