First, hello everyone. I'm brand new to the forum and relatively new to my Mac addiction. I am a Professional Motocross and Supercross journalist and blogger and it was just 12 months ago that I got my first Mac--or any Apple product. Now, including my kids, I have ten devices on my iCloud account. Anyways, my favorite part of owning the Mac's has been being able to tinker and upgrade. I upgraded my Late 2012 i5 MacMini, my Early 2011 i7 MacBook Pro and my Late 2009 C2D MacMini with SSD's and maxed them all out at 16gb, 16gb and 8gb of Ram respectively. While the 2009 MacMini is not a work machine (it's in the living room and a major contributor to our family viewing entertainment), I still find it running pretty low on it's 8gb Ram quite a bit when I have a stream and a few other App's running. Alright, so my question is, has anyone upgraded the lLate '09 Mini to 16gb and had it work and if so, what Ram did they use? I would try the Ram sticks from my other machines but one is 1333 and the other is 1600. I mean, when I first bought the thing, the guy I bought it from said it was maxed out at 4gb and so did the Apple help page, but it works with 8gb. So, why not 16gb? Anywho, sorry to be so long winded, I just thought because I'm new I would work a little about me into the question.
