Is this a good deal?
Amazon 16GB Crucial RAM upgrade $79.99
That looks like a good deal to me. I have had very good luck and experiences with Crucial memory.
It's a great deal. I just bought the same RAM for $110 from Amazon.
FWIW, I've got a couple of 16GB RAM sets in the For Sale area for $65/ea shipped.
(That's a terrific deal for new though)
Looks like RAM has finally dipped back down...been a long time.
I too am thinking of adding RAM to my 2012 Mac Mini i5. The only question is, upgrade to 8GB for $47 or 16GB for $77? 3 year old machine, but should have a lot of life left.
Yes, that is a good deal for the standard CL11 RAM. If you want the slightly faster CL9 RAM, then get this:
Crucial Ballistix Sport
During the winter, it was about $104. I'll be pressing the button on that here my self very soon.
We gotta hurry! The price just went up 47 cents!
I wound up buying it from Adorama, still $79.99. Picked up Applecare for the Mac Mini for $69 as well. Not bad!
$74.99 on Newegg right now. Well, $84.99 with a $10 off promo code until 8/19.
I ordered some for my Mini
The Crucial Ballistix Sport is also available at Adorama, B&H Photo, and NewEgg, where some might be able to avoid tax:
Other CL9 memory that works in the 2012 Mini:
Corsair Vengeance Performance
Kingston HyperX Impact Black
It used to be that CL9 was a lot more expensive than CL11, but prices have gotten lower on CL9 in the last year, so it's an easier choice to make.
Is DDR-L compatible with the Mac mini 6.2 (2012, i7, QuadCore)?
The Kingston HyperX Impact SO-DIMM Kit 16GB, DDR3L-1600, CL9-9-9 (HX316LS9IBK2/16) recommended here is obviously of that variety.
The information at Kingston.com is, that it supports 1.5V though.
@anselm: All Ivy Bridge 2012 Macs support 1.35 V RAM. The 1.5 V is only for backwards compatibility with Sandy Bridge CPUs, which do not support 1.35 V RAM.
I ordered two sets of 16GB Crucial RAM at the $74 price just now. One set for my 2012 Mac Mini and the other for my 2012 MBP. I will have them tomorrow.
