I had the standard 4GB of RAM that came with this Mac Mini. When I pulled it out it the chips had the Micron Logo on them so it was Crucial RAM that Apple was u sing. Since upping the RAM to 8GB the Page outs have dropped from several GB to a few MB. The browser shuts down much faster, and overall my Mac Mini is a bit f aster. My GeekBench score went from 3897 to 3937. It's not a significant jump bu t it is an improvement. Please note I have replaced the stock 5,400 RPM hard dri ve with a Seagate 7,200RPM hard drive in this Mac which I purchased from Amazon so it is already a bit faster. I am glad Crucial is selling their RAM on Amazon because they are using this Ver ified by Visa thing that requires you to give Visa your email address and the la st four digits of your Social Security number, which is a security risk in my op inion, to purchase RAM from them so I won't purchase Crucial RAM directly from C rucial any more. Personally I don't want Visa to have my email address so they c an sell it, and this is just another way for hackers to get my cc information an d the last four digits of my Social Security number. That's nobody's business. The video on how to install this RAM into your Mac Mini can be found at Other Wo rld Computing's site, or ifixit.com where they have videos too for Macs. If you aren't mechanical do NOT attempt to do this to your Mac Mini. It's microsurgery and requires some mechanical skills and the proper tools.

Just ins talled Lion and since then it had been acting very strange. Googled changing a h ard drive on the IMac and found all kinds of help on the web. Youtube has severa l very good videos on changing the hard drive on the Mac so since I have repaire d many PC's I decided to give it a shot. Had to open it up a second time because

installed the OS and then updated to Lion. The hard drive is fast and the price is excellent compared to Newegg. but it was good after that.0 Gb-s 16 MB Cache 3.
