OWC announces RAM upgrades for new Mac minis

updated 06:45 pm EDT, Mon July 25, 2011

Up to $229 savings on 8GB upgrades

Other World Computing (OWC) has announced that 4GB and 8GB kits of DDR3 1333MHz RAM, specifically for the new "Mid 2011" Mac minis, are now available. The RAM kits work with all speeds and chip models of the new Mac mini, and can be up to $229 less expensive than similar upgrade offers direct from the Apple online store. OWC also offers a small discount on the RAM kits when users trade-in their factory RAM modules when ordering.

The 4GB kit consists of two 2GB matched memory sticks, and sell for $38 (or $35 with original 2 x 1GB factory RAM trade-in) and represents a savings of $65 over the same option from Apple (for a 2.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i5). The 8GB kit offers two 4GB modules for $85 (or as low as $71 with 2 x 2GB factory RAM trade-in), a savings of $229 over factory 8GB options from Apple. The company also offers 12GB (one 4GB module and one 8GB one) and 16GB (2 x 8GB) kits, with prices of $760 for the former and $1,420 for the latter.

The 4GB and 8GB kits, as well as a selection of RAM modules suitable for most other Mac models, are available for order now. Details on the memory trade-in program can be found here.
