Question: RAM UPGRADE FOR RETINA MODEL MACKBOOK PRO

My early 2013 Retina MacBook Pro came with 16GB of Ram; Can I upgrade it to perhaps 24 GB or even better 32 GB of physical Memory?

Check with the everymac.com web site but I suspect you may have a model with soldered in RAM. I also don't know that you really can use more RAM that you already have and if you do need more then getting something more than a notebook style computer may be worth considering.

Have you checked you actual RAM usage with Activity Monitor when running this software?


From my experience, RAM and CPU usage are unrelated. I have applications which saturate my CPU usage but when I check RAM I still have free or unused RAM.
