Re: I buy RAM on eBay, and Aperture from the Apps Store

I've bought lots of RAM from eBay. Kingston brand is top quality. I would expect any Amazon listed supplier to be good -- they know that Amazon will rip their bloody arms off if they mess around.

I just maxed my 2010 MBP 13" to 8 GB RAM which allowed me to use Cocktail.app (an excellent donation-ware maintenance tool) to turn off memory swapping to the HD so stuff runs entirely in RAM at great speed. Whether this helps you or not with the apps you are working with is a matter to check out, of course.

Aperture -- buy it online at the Apple's App Store. It is priced at about a third of the price they have it in their regular software purchases. Obviously, they want to suck us into the App Store. I understand there'll be no upgrade pricing; currently we're on v.3 -- when v.4 comes out, it will be the full App store price again. But work that out against the full price now.

Cheers, geoff
