    I think buying a mac mini but seeing the 8gb memory price of $ 300 in the apple store :eek:

    I guess it's better to buy memory separately


    Kingston Apple 8GB Kit (2x4GB Modules) 1066MHz DDR3 SODIMM iMac and Macbook Memory (KTA-MB1066K2/8G)

    $87.99
    or

    Crucial CT2KIT51264BC1067 8GB 204-PIN PC3-8500 SODIMM DDR3 (4GBx2)
    $78.99


    thanks

    I'm curious too. Had my eye on the Kingston ram. But keep hearing things about the Crucial being better?

    2006 model a 1.66ghz c2d had some mushkin.

    apple no longer bothers to have an apple label for any of the ram it uses. when it did have a label it was simple rebranding of one of the above companies.
