    Umm, yes you can. All Macs with the exception of the Mac Pro (uses full desktop sized memory sticks) and Macbook Air (because they are soldered on) use DDR3 204pin Sodimms and any made 2011 and newer can use the 8GB sticks (even if Apple only states 4GB sticks on their website).

    So yes the Mac Mini can use a 16GB kit. This will max out the mini.

    I do not understand what you mean by your statement.

    These sticks work in 2011 Sandy bridge mac minis.

    They also work in 2011 iMacs and in 2011 mac book pros.

    Will these work in the Mac Mini Core 2 Duo 2.66GHZ server additions?

    Not sure but I do not think so.

    $35 discount vs the normal price, and it says specifically for Mac computers. I can't afford it at the moment, but I would love to upgrade my 2011 iMac to max memory. Good find, I bet it gets sold out fast.

    Nope. Unfortunately until 2011, Mac Mini's could only use 8GB (or less depending on the model)

    Careful! Core 2 Duo Mac Mini uses 1067 MHz DDR3 whereas the memory shown on sale is 1333 MHz DDR3. I tried using the 1333 MHz ram on my MacBook Pro 2.4 which also uses the same 1067MHz as the Core 2 Duo Mac Mini, and it got stuck at the boot stage. Theoretically a higher speed ram should work at a lower speed bus, but that is not what happened in practice. You have been warned.

    Not sure what you are pointing out here.... I pointed out that this kit won't work with 2010's, but actually even my old 2009 MBP could use 1333 MHz Ram. You just needed to use the right spec'ed RAM (and yes it actually ran at 1333).

    Actually it's not your comment that I was referring to but rather tigres' question. I mistakenly quoted you, sorry:). tigres was asking if he could use these memory modules on a 2.66 core 2 duo Mini, and I was trying to warn him about the fact that these 1333 MHz modules will not work on a 1066 MHz bus. At least that is my experience.
