    Beginners like me often get confused over memory or storage. STORAGE capacity [hard drive] is much more difficult for mac newbies to access. I still do not know why I would need to know my processor speed, even if I need to upgrade my memory [RAM] to increase my imac’s working speed. Thank you for your site!

      In Classic Mac I used to be able to see how much ram was being used and by what. I could even allocate more ram to Photoshop.

      Can I see this in OSX?

        Yes just open activity monitor and it will show you all that.

    On a mac mini that’s a few years old (no access panel), is there any way to tell how many sticks of memory are in it? Clearly it has 2mb, and I believe it was ordered that way from Apple, but the question is, is that memory on two sticks or one? Would like to purchase before it goes under the knife — to minimize downtime… Thanks

    Go to (Your name)’s Macbook, right click Macintosh HD and Get Info.

    Joey, that will tell you how much storage space is on your Mac’s disk, not how much RAM.

    Click the apple top left corner. Then as shown click more info.
    You can see how much memory you have and how much you are able to add. You can also find how big the hd is and how much space you have left. Plus info about your monitor. Hope this helps.
