Ordered mine last night for that price. Hopefully it arrives soon. The base mini isn't so fast with only 4GB of RAM.

Is this one of the most compatible memories for the new mac mini?
Getting the Apple 16GB down where I live would cost me more than 329 euros.

"Most compatible". LOL.

ANY 204 pin PC-12800 RAM stick will work. It doesn't matter if it's CL9 or CL11, it doesn't even matter if it's not 1600 MHz (well, it would be a bit slower if it isn't, but it would work perfectly), so stop caring about which RAM you buy and go get the cheapest.

Ordered 16GB last week for $65 shipped from Newegg with free 2-day shipping.

Remember that there are only about 5 RAM manufacturers in the world. Most of it is just rebranded stuff from big guys like Samsung.

This is the same kit I got for my new Mini a couple of months ago. It's been working fine. I was actually looking to upgrade to 8GB, but I saw the kit on sale, and got it. It was $75 when I bought it in August.

I used the Corsair Vengeance 16GB upgrade on my 2012 mini that I got from Amazon for $76. It was a snap to install, and I am sure there is a performance boost.

I'm in for the deal at Newegg. 8GB would be fine, I'm sure but for $67 why not?! Sure beats $300 for the Apple upgrade.

I bought mine right before the coupon code came out. It's not even here yet! Grrrrr.... On the bright side there is still comfort in knowing what I saved over Apple's price.

If you bought it through Newegg, stop what you are doing, and contact them now! They will honor the new price if you haven't received it yet. Once the package hits your porch, you are out of luck! Just hit em up on their help chat. It's quick and easy.

This is one reason I always use their free ground shipping. I check the day before I get the package and see if any prices have dropped. lol

I just ordered the NewEgg RAM about 2 hours ago.

And this morning I ordered the $78 crucial M4 128GB. I love that site.
