Upgrading my Mid 2010 13" MacBook Pro in 2019 | 250GB SSD, 16GB DDR3 (1066MHz) RAM Memory



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 🙂

***UPDATE***
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.

  1. Also OWC RAM works very well. I used a Seagate 1TB SSHD instead because the controller is only SATA2 and is a perfect combination of speed and disk space

  2. please tell about performance? Is it feels that it faster with 16gb of ram?

  3. I NEED HELP
    I ENABLED FILE VAULT ON MY MACBOOK PRO BUT AM UNABLE TO UNLOCK IT. I HAVE TRIED EVERY GIVEN PROCEEDURE BUT STILL NOT OPENING. CAN YOU SUGGEST TO ME WHAT I HAVE TO DO.

  4. what should i pick a macbook air mid 2013 13" w/ core i5 128gb ssd 4gbram or macbook pro mid 2010 15" w/ core i5 w/ 256ssd and 8gb ram

  5. Tremendous video, thank you. I still running my Macbook mid-2010 with the original specs, seeing this video was proof positive I need to get a proper overhaul. Made all the upgrades [save for replacing the CD drive, which I like having] and the result was better than I could have imagined. Couldn't recommend making the upgrades more to 2010 users. Will do the Mojave upgrade in 2021 when the High Sierra OS is no longer supported. Just a quick question, how do you find Mojave without upgrading your Graphics Card? Does it still run ok?

  6. Worked like a charm. My mid 2010 MBP now screams faster with 16GB RAM. Thanks for posting the art of the possible with the upgrades. 🙂

  7. Wow I didn't know this model supported 16gb ram – how did you know that the trick was to get 1066 ram ? Just trial and error? Nice find!

  8. I justt bought the same macbook you have but my MacBook is running 2GB ram 160GB should i upgrade more so i let the laptop works good fast and smooth?

  9. Great video! You didn't clean it at all? also the thermal paste it was in need to be done? Mine is 1067mhz so I need to get RAM and SSD 1067mhz correct?
