By now, everyone and their sister has heard about Ram Doubler 2.0. Not only does this latest version of the top selling memory enhancer double your memory, but it will also triple it.

You Mac now thinks it has that much more memory! (See picture below)

It’s no big deal, though — I can easily restart with the tilde key held down and disable RAM Doubler for the duration of my CD-ROM usage.
