Why is a laptop RAM upgrade such a great way to boost your laptop’s performance?

But let’s set the Top Gun references aside just for a moment and have a serious chat about Random Acess Memory. (But don’t worry, we have at least one denim shorts reference left in us.)

Here are some of the questions we get asked a lot. Why is RAM so important? Instead of a laptop RAM upgrade, shouldn’t I just buy a new computer? Is laptop RAM repair going to make a big difference to my old laptop’s performance?

Sometimes a new laptop is the answer. If you have a super old laptop, one of our Sacramento nerds can help you choose a shiny new upgrade that gives you the best bang for your buck. But quite often, a simple laptop RAM upgrade can give you a ton of added performance at a fraction of the cost. Unlike the hurly-burly world of combat aviation, sometimes there are indeed points for second place

What else can we tell you about RAM? Here are some important pointers. 

1. RAM versus other computer memory

The next thing you probably need to know is that your laptop has more than one kind of memory. First, you have your computer’s hard drive. Think of that as long-term memory. It’s where files get stored, and it’s where all the ones and zeros that make your software happen live. A bigger hard drive gives you more storage for all that good stuff. 

RAM, on the other hand, is more like your short-term memory. Just like your short-term memory helps you keep a shopping list in your head or do a quick bit of mental arithmetic, your laptop’s RAM helps it remain smart and efficient when a lot of quick-fire stuff is going on. This is why a laptop RAM upgrade can have such a profound impact on your laptop’s overall performance. 

These two kinds of memory work as a team, not unlike two awesome dudes in denim shorts playing beach volleyball. With us so far? Good! You can be our wingman any time

2. Some RAM is better than others

The next thing you should know is that there is good RAM and not-so-good RAM. Some RAM wears out quicker than others. Some kinds of RAM are faster. So if you’re not going to be happy unless you’re going Mach 2 with your hair on fire, your best bet is to choose quality RAM for your laptop RAM upgrade or laptop RAM repair.

Nerds On Call can walk you through your various options and give you a clear picture of what RAM will work best for your laptop and budget. We can even come to your home or place of business in Sacramento

3. You don’t necessarily need allllll the RAM!

If you’ve lost that loving feeling for your laptop, your first instinct might be to go for a huge laptop RAM upgrade, squeezing as much memory grunt into your laptop as humanly possible. 

RAM isn’t the only factor here. Your laptop’s CPU, graphics card, and configuration play into your laptop’s performance too. To really get a performance boost, a great first step is to have Sacramento Nerds On Call perform a free laptop diagnostic.
