    You can use this Link to check which RAM is suitable for your Mac...

    It is Important to get the Correct and Matching RAM

     

    For best performance, fill all memory slots, installing an equal memory module in each slot.

     

    That site also has videos on how to Install RAM should you need it...

     

     

    Here are Apples Instructions... Installing RAM
