The 2012 Macbook Pro Memory Mystery

Although it has been billed as 'the most beautiful computer' that Apple have ever built, and was launched to incredible sales figures in its opening weeks, the newest model of the Macbook Pro has come under fire for its non-upgradable memory and internal storage. Indeed, the lack of Apple memory options available for the new model has been listed as the top complaint for users of the new system, alongside the thermal shutdown function and the relative inability to repair faulty machines. The glued-in battery and the soldered RAM memory renders any sort of modification impossible. 25% of users surveyed by a FixYa report found this flaw unacceptable and are actively searching for ways in which the memory of their expensive new models can be enhanced.

Experts are advising that if consumers wish to buy a Macbook Pro with extensive memory options, they purchase an older model, but this would mean missing out on the celebrated new retina display along with a host of other new features. Those who wish to enjoy the new features of a Macbook Pro can turn to the alternative of purchasing external storage to store their most important files. External hard disks or hard drives can massively expand the initial space for Apple products and their small size fits perfectly with the portable element of the famously thin laptops.

External hard drives come with a whole raft of different options and sizes. Many of them utilize FireWire 800, Apple's branded name for their own high-speed data serial bus, which can transfer data at rates of up to 800 megabits per second. USB 2.0 connectivity is also a standard so the units can be used to extend PC storage as well as that of a Macbook Pro. Units such as the 500GB Lacie Rugged 2.5-inch External Hard Drive are entirely powered by the port they are connected to, be that FireWire or USB, and they are plug and play, so no drivers are needed to necessitate use. These external drives are ideal for backups, as well as storing and transferring music, photos and other data. The shock resistant rubber bumper around the edges of the drive means this type of drive offers optimum portability and can be coupled with a Macbook Pro on the go for a powerful, high-speed memory upgrade.

Flash memory is also an alternative to keeping the data storage within a Macbook Pro relatively clear. USB flash drives and SD memory cards can effectively store photos and other important documents away from the system itself to keep it running smoothly and prevent the memory from becoming full too quickly. USB drives generally have much smaller capacity than external hard drives, but their higher levels of portability make them easier to use for those constantly on the go.
