As it is a single 8 GB module of 204-pin DDR3 SO-DIMM RAM, it is compatible with a 2011 13" MacBook Pro, if that is what you have.

The 2010 Mac mini is 1066, this is 1333. I always thought that you need to match the speed? Are you sure this will work? Thanks.

You don't need to match the speed. I use 1333 MHz 204-pin DDR3 SO-DIMM RAM in my 2009 MBP, which came with 1066 MHZ RAM.

The RAM is automatically down-clocked to the speed the motherboard provides.

Gentlemen, thanks for the replies. Please enlighten me - the 1066 is normally having a CAS of 7 where the 1333 normally has a CAS of 9. If the latter is downclocked to 1066 is then the latency more with the 1333 memory than with the 1066 memory?

Edit: I have 4 Gb genuine Apple (Samsung) PC3-8500 DDR3 (Mac mini server 2010)and 4 Gb genuine Apple (Samsung) PC3-10600 DDR3 memory (Mac mini 2011). I decided to test the latter in the 2010 server.

OS X did not want to boot without a kernel panic (!), windows did. Windows Experience Index gave the same results for both memory however shortly afterwards I had a blue screen. (crash).

I found some references on the Intel website that mentioned to use only memory of the specified speed for the CPU otherwise unstability was possible. I'll be selling off the 10600 8Gb and getting some 8500 8Gb. (Mid 2010 takes only a max of 8 Gb)
