You may have noticed that when you check the maximum amount of supported memory for your Mac, that we recommend more than Apple has listed on their technical specification.

The good news is that this is not a mistake! On occasion you will find that due to system updates and technological advances, some Macs may be able to support more memory compared to when it was originally manufactured. At Crucial, we ensure that the higher amount of RAM is rigorously tested and is backed by our compatibility guarantee.

We recommend that you run our System Scanner, or use our Advisor Tool, so you can accurately check the amount of memory your Mac can support. We have had thousands of happy and surprised Mac users, so why not upgrade today.
