    I order this for my Late 2012 2.3GHz Intel Core i7 Mac Mini and it has made a HUGE difference. Before installing this memory my computer was very slow to open programs, power on, and wake up from sleep mode. I also had issues with airplay to my Apple TV. Now with the 16GB memory upgrade it is like night and day. My computer is so much faster, opens programs right away, and doesn't have issues waking up and running airplay. It was very easy to install, only took a couple of minutes. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to speed up their Mac Mini.

    Also, the customer support is great! I had a question about this product and called Crucial support and they were super helpful!

          Best way to buy memory.

          By Loving my new Mac...glad I tossed my PC.

          from Tulsa, OK

          Verified Buyer

          Trying to figure out which memory chips are the right ones is a pain, even the boneheads at my local store couldn't figure it out. I did the computer scan here, ordered the recommendation, popped them in my Mac Mini and fired right up. Very pleased and highly recommend.

          from Atlanta, GA

          Verified Buyer

          Finding the correct RAM for a Mac can be a bit difficult.
          Crucial's "memory finder" app took 5 seconds to scan my system and identify the right cards to choose from.
          So I ordered with extra confidence that I had the right cards
          Quick delivery, easy installation, Lots of help available from Crucial
          Works fine
          I have noticed a significant performance improvement due to the expanded memory
