Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.

Memory or DRAM is the "working" memory of the computer. It's used to store data for programs (sequences of instructions) on a temporary basis.

Storage:

SATA

Storage Drives -- hard drives and solid state drives -- are the permanent memory for the programs and documents on your computer.

Data Transfer Rate is the rate at which data can be sent or received. This is determined by your motherboard. A drive with a higher transfer rate will only run at the rate of the motherboard's transfer rate.

Cache is a type of working memory that allows the drive to perform faster.

RPM is the rotations per minute of a hard drive which effects the speed of data transfer.

Solid State Drives are non-moving memory, so access speed is instant.

                    I bought the Matched Pair of RAM to replace what was in our Macbook Pro as they were NOT a matched pair. It helped a little, but I was not expecting much as that was not my goal.

                      Crucial is great. They went back and forth a bit before accepting our non-profit status, but they were just protecting themselves. Their online help video for install was spot on, [...], was clean and new, and went in like a dream. No complaints, these people, and the memory, are great!

                              My computers performance was improved for a relatively little amount of money. Everyone should look into maxing out the memory on their computer or laptop.
