How to Upgrade the RAM (Memory) on a Laptop

Whether your older laptop is feeling sluggish or your newer system starts to bog down when too many tabs are open, adding more RAM could solve the problem. If your computer doesn’t have enough physical memory, it starts swapping data to your hard drive or SSD, which is an infinitely slower process (even with the slowest of RAM chips). While not all modern laptops give you access to the RAM, many do provide a way to upgrade your memory. 

The biggest hurdle you will face is whether your laptop allows you to upgrade your RAM. If you own a 2013 or newer MacBook for example, don’t bother, Apple has been soldering the RAM into all of its laptops for almost a decade now. But if you can upgrade your laptop’s memory, it won’t cost you much money or time. A quick search of your laptop’s model name should tell you whether you can go forward with this process.
