At Crucial, we understand something important about Mac computers. They're intuitive and easy to work with. Your memory should be too.

Compatibility for Mac systems.
Engineered to be compatible with your Apple® system, Crucial Memory for Mac takes the guesswork out of a memory upgrade. Since Apple systems often have very specific memory requirements, including particular component densities, speeds, and SPD programming specifications, it's important to buy your memory from people who know Apple computers inside and out. With over a decade of experience manufacturing and developing memory for Apple systems, we make it easy to find memory that's been designed specifically for your system.

Reliability for Mac systems.
If you're an Apple computer user, you probably expect intuitive, reliable performance from your system. We think memory should work the same way, too. For each module we manufacture, we send it through a rigorous testing process to ensure that you're getting a reliable, high-performance memory solution. Every module that leaves our doors has been extensively tested at the component level for voltage and temperature resistances, signal integrity, and software compatibility. The result? Reliable memory that meets or exceeds Apple's own memory requirements. With the latest lead and halogen-free technology and built-in thermal sensors1 to help control your system's cooling, Crucial Memory for Mac features advanced innovations.

Support for Mac systems.
Unsure how to install memory or have an important question about your Apple system? Let our team of experts help! With a tech-savvy team that's well-versed in Apple systems, we'll provide the technical support you need—no matter how old your Mac computer gets. From phone support, videos, FAQ articles, and do-it-yourself guides, we've got the resources you need to keep your system up to speed.

Crucial—quality you can depend on.
Crucial is a trusted name when it comes to DRAM, and that's no coincidence. As a brand of Micron, one of the largest manufacturers of DRAM in the world, we work with our engineers to design, refine, test, manufacture, and support our extensive line of memory modules. With a product portfolio that includes more than 250,000 different DRAM upgrades for more than 50,000 systems, we've got one specifically designed for your Mac system. For more than a decade we've kept Mac computer owners happy with high-performance memory and outstanding customer service. No matter what type of Mac system you have, we've got a compatible solution.

      Cons

      • No cons

      Best Uses

      • Used In My 2008 Apple

      Great product, Great service with product selection, great website, eventually let down by Royal Mail who didn't deliver in the 2 days paid for although say they tried. I was at home off work waiting, no card was left. Eventually had to pay another £1.50, wait 2 days and go to a post office to collect. Rubbish service. Very kindly Crucial refunded postage and the Crucial staff member was delightful promising to take a note of customer feedback and pass it to those who can change things. Product was exactly as expected, easy to install by Luddite such as me and it works in my early 2008 Apple Macbook.

        2008 13" MACbook memory upgrade

        By WilPro

        from Wiltshire

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Improves Multi-tasking

        Cons

        • Awkward To Install

        Best Uses

          I bought and installed this in my wife's 13" MACbook to improve multi-tasking.
          Limited space in the the 13" MACbook chassis makes this a bit of a struggle to install.
          Seems to work well (installed 1-month ago).
          No problems.
