Which is a better Ram to buy Corsair or Cruciable for the 2011 Mac Mini? Thanks Any responses to this? Question


I also would like to know this.

OWC offers up to a 16 GB memory upgrade kit. Does anybody know which brand the memory is?
Won't the company tell you this? Try Googling it perhaps.


If we all were googling everything, we could just put away with all forums and pick our noses instead. Did you google your own question? Wink

That is the problem we cannot think any longer without this dam computer doing it for us. You have a phone call the company. make some effort on your part.

True, RAM makes a huge difference. Do you want to know what else does? Putting a SSD in your 2011 Mac mini. I just bought an 256GB Samsung 830 series SSD from Newegg and it's made even more of a difference. Applications almost open instantly and startup times are insanely fast. The upgrade didn't hit my wallet that hard either. I only paid $189 for the drive after getting $60 off with a promo discount. Which happens to end today, by the way. Get one if you can!

Ram is cheap that is why Apple uses the cheapest Ram possible which is Hynix costing $4 each stick.Pretty sad indeed cheaper than Kingston also.SSD are good but i heard their life expectancy is not that good compared to the HD.

I disagree with the comment above that 2 Gigs is enough for Lion. The 2011 Mini I had shipped with 2 gigs was a dog until I upped it to 4. Added an SSD and it flies.

I have a 2011 MM and it had 2 gigs before I upped it to 8 gigs and before that using LION OS I never had a problem.I have no SSD at all just the plain HD.
