Mac Mini Late 2009 Mem Upgrade

Hi, I have a Mac Mini Late 2009 with 4gb ram. After installing Mac OSX Mavericks, I've experienced a system worse performance and the memory consumption has raised. Would I get a significant bennefit upgrading to 8gb ram? Thank you all.

Hi fcm52,


Thanks for contacting us today. You should see a noticeable difference if you do upgrade to 8GB of RAM. The minimum requirement for Mavericks is 2GB of RAM. 4GB is really on the low end of what you would want to use for your type of system and Mavericks. The upgrades for your system can be found here. Please let us know if you have any other questions about this upgrade.
