The Other World Computing company started selling the RAM modules for Mac mini models released five months ago. Previously there was written in the official specifications of Apple that new Mac mini models were to operate with memory modules of the overall maximum volume of 8 Gb.
However, already today you may buy modules of 16 Gb from Other World Computing, herewith, the company guarantees their normal performance.
Other World Computing offers four RAM modules sets as following:
Two 1333 MHz DDR3 modules of 2 Gb at the price of 38$;
Two 1333 MHz DDR3 modules of 4 Gb at 80$;
One 1333 MHz DDR3 module of 4 Gb + one 1333 MHz DDR3 module of 8 Gb at 750$;
Two 1333 MHz DDR3 modules of 8 Gb at 1400$.
Though during the last week before the New Year holiday prices soared, we hope that after the holiday everything will be as it was.
Current Mac mini models have the same look and the compactness of the previous modifications, however they became much rapider and more powerful.
If you used to be satisfied before with the Core 2 Duo and the integrated GPU NVIDIA 320M having the most limitless possibilities, then today you may get both Core i5/i7 or AMD Radeon HD 6630M having cache of 256 Mb.
There is no the optic drive but this allowed to get up to two drives. If somebody is willing to pay for the module of 8 Gb the same price that older Mac mini models had, he certainly will be satisfied.
Of course, it may be too expensive for most people, however, things that OWC offers must be interesting because of real possibility to work with the RAM of 16 Gb unlike official specifications.
