    I think this is the correct one, but I just want to be more sure :)

    It says nothing about being Mac compatible. You won't know until you install it. It's really just a shot in the dark. Look for a RAM supplier that guarantees Mac compatibility. That way you'll know for sure.

    It's the right specs, but man is that cheap compared to crucial (and crucial isnt' unreasonable for quality ram).

    Well I kinda trust Transcend, so I think I'll give it a shot :)

    Trusting Transcend isn't the issue. When looking at RAM, there are some widely known specs as you have searched for. There are many other specs that are generally not so known. Historically, Macs are very picky about these lesser known specs. I'll say it again, purchasing this RAM will just be a shot in the dark.

    But anyway wouldn't the Intel chipset makes things better?

    I'd agree here. I'm not sure about NewEgg's return policy or if they guarantee their products, but I'd point you toward DMS. They'll guarantee their products, and you can just go to a page specifically about your computer, so you know it'll work. Here's their page about the Intel Mini: Intel Mini RAM. It's about 10 bucks more, but you know it'll work.

    Maybe, maybe not. It's not a chance I'd take.

    New Egg will cover all costs associated with a DOA stick of RAM. If the RAM is fine, it just doesn't work in a Mac, they usually will charge you a restocking fee.

    Agreed. Datamem is where I purchase all my RAM for my Macs. I use New Egg for my PC.
