I just bought a 2012 Mac Mini. Here are the specs
(2.3GHz Mac mini
2.3GHz quad-core Intel Core i7
4GB memory
1TB hard drive1
Intel HD Graphics 4000
OS X Mountain Lion)
The sales person gave me Crucial part number CT2C8G3S160BM to upgrade the memory.
Crucial website says I should use part number : CT3650349
Which one is correct? Will the memory i have work?

this works and it is what the sales person sold to you.

this is what is on the crucial website

I also have the 2012 Mac Mini and I ordered this from Amazon and it works great....

Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Laptop Memory (CMSX16GX3M2A1600C10)

Best of luck, and remember not to force those little arms on the side of the memory module holder, I broke one but the memory still seated ok and I have not had any issue with it.

Thanks for the replys! One more question. I have yet to hook it up. Hw does it get? Does it need a lot of space? Thanks in advance!
