Great Deals on RAM Upgrades for the 2012 iMac, MacBook Pro and Mac Mini

Have you received, or are you planning to purchase one of Apple’s new Mac Minis, or one of the new ultra-thin 2012 iMacs? You’ll probably want some extra RAM to make your new Mac really sing – but don’t pay Apple’s premium prices! You can upgrade your new Mac to up to 32GB of RAM for less than $150! Here are a few deals you might find useful:

The RAM will also work Apple’s 2012 MacBook Pros (non-Retina, of course). I personally use a 16GB Corsair Vengeance kit ib my 2012 15-inch MacBook Pro, and it’s been working like a champ for a few months now with no issues! Apple charges a whopping $300 for a 16GB RAM upgrade in the Mac Mini – a full 3-4 times as much as it costs to install and upgrade the RAM yourself! Yikes!

Give yourself a break, flip Apple the finger on their outrageous upgrade prices, and save some cash! Just as a guideline: The Mac Mini and MacBook Pro feature two RAM slots, while the new 27-inch iMac contains four slots (the 21.5-inch iMac does not have user-replaceable RAM). Happy upgrading!

  1. Interesting, but false. I have been using a 16GB Corsair Vengeance kit for many months in my 2012 MacBook Pro. Works like a champ.
