A purchase that has bugged me for months has finally been put to rest. Last week my iMac was running so slow multitasking I caved and purchased a 2GB kit of Crucial RAM from Newegg.
With a mail-in rebate the credit card damage was in my price range and my mac being non-intel any speedboost was warrented. I’ve been working on photos recently and having multiple applications open and trying to listen to music at the same time was getting more and more painful. The bloat of some of these applications was hitting hard and extra memory should help.
The installation was a breeze and I was able to compress air some the dust bunnies out of the case. Tonight I will use Onyx to do some maintenance on my OS and when Leopard comes out do a clean installation on my box. Regardless in my opinion if you want to get any work done with Tiger the speed boost 2GB of RAM delivers is welcoming. To mimic jja’s reaction to 2GB….sweet….
