16GB RAM Kit for Apple Mac mini (2011)

16GB RAM Kit for Apple Mac mini (2011)

What is this?

Two 8GB RAM sticks, totaling 16GB, for my Apple Mac mini (2011)

Why did I buy it?

The Mac mini was 5 years old and only had 2GB of RAM when I got it. Despite official figures stating that the 2011 Mac mini can only support 8GB, it can actually hold 16. RAM is one of those upgrades that will really help you out when doing a lot of things at once. And since time is money, this upgrade makes a lot of sense.

The brand I purchased was G.Skill and these are the exact specs:

16GB (2 x 8G) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666)
