Upgrading my Mid 2010 13″ MacBook Pro in 2019 | 250GB SSD, 16GB DDR3 (1066MHz) RAM Memory, New Battery, Hard Drive Caddy Tray
This is a video for my Student Blog while studying my Graphic Communication FdA. I’m currently running an old MacBook Pro (Mid 2010), and it is beginning to struggle with Adobe InDesign… With the sky-high prices of MacBook Pros in 2019 and the thermal throttling issues, I thought I would experiment with an upgrade.
Apple claims you can not upgrade the RAM Memory beyond 8GBs, but you can! Make sure the RAM speed matches what the machine came with. In this case, it’s 1066MHz!!!
I hope this helps explain how an upgrade is done physically. If you would like to know more on the installation process and creating a bootable USB, then please refer to the videos linked below 🙂
The cheap battery I used failed after a few months… Also, I found patching Mojave to be a little annoying with regards to update messages. Next time I’ll just stick with the official macOS.
