WOODSTOCK, Illinois - OWC announced that its in-house MaxRAM tested and verified compatible OWC DDR3 1333MHz 16GB Memory Upgrade Kit ‘supercharges’ 2011 Apple MacBook Pro and Mac mini models by doubling the Factory maximum offered memory. The OWC 16GB Memory Upgrade Kit, now priced at $929.99, joins existing popular OWC memory upgrade kits for MacBook Pro and Mac mini models including the 8GB Memory Upgrade Kit priced at $71.99, which offers savings up to 70% compared to the same sized Factory installed 8GB option.
While Apple’s official minimum RAM requirement for OS X Lion is 2GB, industry experts agree 4GB of RAM is the minimum that should be installed for optimum performance of typical daily computer usage. For more advanced uses such as graphics production, A/V editing, and/or running a virtual machine, 8GB to 16GB of RAM is highly recommended.
By maintaining its own lab (http://eshop.macsales.com/memory/OWC_Test_Lab) with the industry’s most extensive collection of Apple Macintosh computers only second to Apple itself, OWC is uniquely positioned to develop memory upgrade kits that deliver maximum capacity, performance, and savings.
