PR 11macmini memory16GB
With last week's release of upgraded Mac Mini's, Apple's baby Mac is actually a fairly beefy machine. Other World Computing is taking that a step further by offering a 16GB RAM upgrade -- twice what Apple offers:

OWC 4GB DDR3 1333MHz Memory Kit (2 x 2GB memory modules) - $37.99

OWC 8GB DDR3 1333MHz Memory Kit (2 x 4GB memory modules) - $79.99

OWC 12GB DDR3 1333MHz Memory Upgrade Kit (8GB + 4GB memory modules) $749.99

OWC 16GB DDR3 1333MHz Memory Upgrade Kit (2 x 8GB memory modules) - $1399.99

OWC maintains a "MaxRAM" testing lab of Apple machines and has verified that the new Mac Mini can accept up to 16 GB of RAM.

What a complete and utter rip-off. How can they justify such a price. No thanks! Come back with £100 per stick and you have a deal, that's just blatant overcharging and I get great performance with 8GB thanks.

I understand there's development costs, marketing, and manufacturing, but c'mon really that much? You guys need your head seeing to.

Higher density chips have lower yields. Once the process gets better the price will go down. Heck, I once paid $1100 for a 32MB SIMM.

r they serious? 16 GB Ram cost no more than 99 euro on amazon
Not for two SO-DIMMs.

I can buy a whole new ThinkPad with 16GB RAM (http://cgi.ebay.com/New-Lenovo-ThinkPad-W520-Core-i7-2720QM-w-FHD-16GB-RAM-/250860580654?pt=Laptops_Nov05&hash=item3a6874af2e#ht_7327wt_856) for little more than that price of RAM!
Take a look at the specs. That laptop uses 4 memory modules. If the mini had four slots then it would be much cheaper to upgrade to 16GB.
