on Mac Mini Memory Upgrade
If you’re like me like I know I am, you’re excited about Apple releasing the new Mac Mini 2018 model. After waiting 4 years for a new one, Apple’s taken customer feedback and made a better machine for everyone.
But you don’t have to take my word for it, just cruise on over to Apple’s Website and see the new Mac Mini’s for yourself.
While you are there, if you are thinking about getting a new one, consider if you want to pay their premium to get a good amount of RAM Memory. You will likely want more than the baseline 8 GB. I’d consider that acceptable today but only in laptops purchased for those who do not intend to do much multitasking or running memory intense apps (like those used for graphic design, video editing, etc.). My recommendation is no less than 16 GB RAM for a laptop and a desktop PC like the Mac Mini should really have at least 16 GB and I’d recommend 32 GB.
TL;DR: If you want to have a faster, more responsive Mac Mini but you don’t want to pay what Apple charges, send me an email and we’ll get you fixed up for less of your hard-earned cash.
