    Alright I have had my IMac Mid 2011 model since the day it came out, I am now looking to upgrade it to to 16GB, Replacing the 2 2GB sticks that are in there. I've been thinking about buying Cruical but there is two different cruical listings and 1 is the best selling ram on amazon and the other is the 2nd best selling. What is the difference between the two? they both are 8GB, 204 pin,etc

    Do you have the 21 inch or 27 inch. If so did you get SSD for your main drive or the 1 or 2TB? Does it startup pretty quick? I always go with the faster Memory PC3-10600 as that is the route I always taken when building PCs.... for 15 yrs now. Although in the PC world there are more options

    Can't go wrong with Crucial. I upgraded my '10 i7 from the factory 4 GB to 12 GB using two 4 GB sticks. No issues whatsoever.
