Not Enough RAM In Your New Mac Mini? OWC Will Give You 16GB for $1,400

Apple’s latest line of Mac mini compact desktops offer some pretty impressive specifications. What with those latest Intel Core i5 and i7 processors and the opportunity to grab a solid-state drive with a custom build, you can get a super speedy mini if you have the money.

One thing you can’t get for your new machine, no matter have much money you have, is 16GB of RAM… at least not from Apple.

Other World Computing, on the other hand, is now offering 16GG RAM upgrades for Apple’s latest Mac mini line — that’s double the RAM you can get from Apple itself. However, it will come at a price.

$1,399.99 to be exact, which is nearly double the price of Apple’s high-end 2.5GHz Core i5 mini. If that’s a little too expensive for you, how about 12GB of RAM for $749.99?

OWC also offers a 4GB upgrade for $37.99, and 8GB for $79.99 — that’s incredibly reasonable compared to Apple’s 8GB upgrade, which will cost you an extra $200.

OWC has tested Apple’s new Mac minis and verified that they will accept up to 16GB of RAM.
