  1. Obviously no1 understands why Apple memory is so much more money then everyone else’s.

    The reason is because they install diamonds into each memory chip, allowing you to have bling on the INSIDE of your computer.

  2. I checked crucial/uk site for 8GB of RAM and its embarrassing how much they’re asking for. Order from otherworldcomputing.com and get it shipped in. Even with duty charges it’s still way lower than what crucial is asking for.

    I used crucial before and the prices have always seemed good. But not this time.

  3. Crucial is top quality RAM, don’t compare it with cheap alternatives. And while it’s as good, if not better, than the “official” RAM that comes with macs it costs only half as much.

    Apple have always ripped people off with their RAM prices. A pity you can’t buy macs with only 512mb fitted.

    I’ve always bought machines with the absolute minimum RAM Apple will sell you and replaced with Crucial RAM.
