Why Does Crucial® Recommend a Higher Maximum RAM Limit for My Mac® Computer?

You might have noticed that when you check the maximum amount of supported memory for your Mac computer, that we recommend more memory 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 Mac systems 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 use the Crucial® Advisor™ tool, so you can accurately check the amount of memory your Mac computer can support. We have had thousands of happy and surprised Mac users, so why not upgrade today?
