Notebook users are all about mobility - and we refuse to let a lack of memory slow them down. We offer a huge range of SODIMM modules in all of the densities you need to get you off and running. We’ve got upgrades for nearly every notebook out there - including Macs - all guaranteed compatible and backed by great warranties.
From the Manufacturer
Help your laptop perform at its best.
Designed to help your laptop run faster and smoother, a Crucial memory upgrade is one of fastest, most affordable, and easiest ways to improve your system’s performance. Crucial memory empowers your laptop to achieve faster application loading times, faster system responsiveness, and increased ability to multitask and handle data-intensive programs. What does this mean? Spend less time staring at loading screens and more time getting stuff done. Crucial laptop modules are rigorously tested at both the component and module level to ensure that your memory meets our stringent compatibility and performance standards. Every module Crucial manufactures is tested for complete functionality before it leaves our doors. At a fraction of the price of your laptop, an investment in Crucial memory helps your system get up to speed.
Crucial – quality you can depend on.

Memory today both amazes and amuses me. I used to build my own OEM systems from the late 80s to almost 2000. When I first started, memory was in its supposed DRAM shortage, when 9 one megabit DRAM chips cost ... yes ... $400 .... one megabyte total. That was 640K of standard memory and 384K of extended RAM. At times we decided to forego the 384K extended and only install 640K to save a LOT of money on a system. Those 9 chips comprising one megabyte were far more mass than is involved in one of these DIMMs which delivers 4 GIGABYTES of memory. LOL There are many long time computer users today who weren't even born when the $400 per megabyte price was our norm. And yes, the poor UPS driver had to walk uphill both ways to deliver it to our offices!
The RAM fits correctly and has noticeably improved the performance of my machine. Installation was a little tricky because of the confined working area inside the Mini's case. Eventually I got both sticks to fit into their slots and clipped down. Overall the install took less than five minutes -- nothing to sweat over. I booted into OS-X (Lion 10.7.1) without any issues and the 8 GB showed up in 'About This Mac' immediately.
I highly recommend this product, especially if you're a DIYer and want to save some money on your Mac Mini RAM upgrades.
Installation was obviously no different than any other RAM you'll find (it's all standardized, of course), though to the uninitiated the thought of opening up your computer might make you a little nervous. Don't be! A RAM upgrade is one of the easiest upgrades you can do. This particular kit worked perfectly and showed up immediately in Windows 7, so no worries.
Note that you'll need a 64-bit version of Windows (Vista or 7), or any recent version of OS X, to see any benefit from a >4 GB kit, as 32-bit OSs cannot address more than 4 GB of RAM. Most (if not all?) new and recent Windows machines ship with the 64-bit version, and you can check this under System in the Control Panel. Mac users of course have nothing to worry about as Apple has been shipping exclusively 64-bit machines for many years now.
Apart from a solid state drive (SSD), a RAM upgrade can make the greatest outwardly perceivable difference in day to day performance. Sure, a new processor or graphics card will make a difference in computationally intensive workloads, but if you don't have enough RAM in your system you'll find yourself constantly hitting slowdowns when your OS swaps data onto and off of the hard disk, and a screaming processor isn't going to help you there. Plus, in a laptop, your upgrade options are pretty limited, so you're basically looking at either RAM or SSD as an upgrade. I'd recommend doing both if it makes sense for your computing needs.
Here's what a RAM upgrade WILL do:
-Alleviate a hardware bottleneck, especially if you only have ~2 GB and are a medium-to-heavy multitasker
-Reduce or eliminate the need for a paging/swap file (i.e. the place on your HDD/SDD where your OS places the overflow when it runs out of RAM)
-Allow you to have more programs running simultaneously and/or to leave large numbers of programs or browser tabs open all the time
Here's what a RAM upgrade WILL NOT do:
-Make that three year old Atom-based netbook any faster (that goes for any underpowered hardware)
-Speed up any operations where another, slower component (e.g. a HDD) is the bottleneck
-Magically make your computer feel faster if you aren't really using close to the limit of your current RAM
Hopefully this helps. This Crucial kit has been working great for over two weeks now, and overall I'm very happy with it. I will certainly trust Crucial in the future when I upgrade another system (this one's maxed out at 8 GB).
