  8. 4, 8, 12, or 16GB RAM? Why RAM is important.

    RAM stores information that your computer can quickly access, however, once the software is closed it gets deleted. Usually the more RAM a computer has to process information, there is an improvement in system performance.

    If you're looking for a Mac to browse the internet, write documents and create spreadsheets, 4GB RAM would be perfect for your needs. Software such as Microsoft Office and internet browsers don't use a lot of RAM space so you can multi-task across different software without seeing any slowdown in your Mac's speed.

    On the other hand, if you are using the Adobe suite or other powerful software to edit photos and videos or create digital art, it is recommended to have 8GB or more. This type of creative software takes up a lot of RAM space and is recalled by the Mac a lot, so 4GB would cause a slowdown in your Mac's speed and

  10. Dual or Quad-core processor? Should you get more cores?

    Quad-core processors are not twice as fast dual-core processors. Let's get that out of the way. What a quad-core processor can do is multi-task more effectively than a dual-core processor could do.

    If you are going to be using your Mac to swap between different software a lot and run multiple software that requires processing power, the quad-core processors such as Intel Core i5 2nd generation (i5-2xxx) and above will suit your needs.

    A lot of modern software can take advantage of quad-core processors such as an internet browser. Google Chrome's internet browser runs faster and can handle more background tabs before slowing the Mac down. If you are going to be working with large spreadsheets or editing multiple documents, you will also see a speed increase over a dual-core processor.

    Dual-core processors should not be mocked, if you are goi
