A slow computer doesn’t mean you need a new one. We’ve done all the compatibility research to set you up with the right parts, tools, and information necessary to breathe new life into Macs up to twelve years old. So go ahead, open all the tabs, say goodbye to the dreaded beach ball, and run those beefy programs with ease. Save your Mac. Upgrade your RAM.
If you have a Mac laptop, replacing the battery yourself is easier and faster than you think. Not all batteries are created equal; every battery can handle a specific number of charge cycles before it’s performance starts to suffer. That makes knowing when exactly to replace your battery unclear. While there’s no hard and fast rule to tell you when to replace your battery, there are some clear signs you can look out for.
Sometime in the near future you’ll venture into your dusty attic or musty garage and pull out a miserably tangled set of Christmas lights. Millions will throw out their broken Christmas lights and buy new ones, but you will not. You are a strong, independent person. You will save Christmas (lights) this year.
