Mac Pro memory, at a very appealing price

Satech has revised their pricing. Please see the 20 August entry instead. The original blog entry as written is below.

I’ve bought memory from before at very competitive prices. Out of about 30 gigabytes (over the years), I had one bad module, which they promptly replaced.

I always buy the "OEM approved" memory, which is claimed to be identical to what you’d buy from the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer eg Apple). I’ve emailed (aka RamFinder) to confirm that the heat sinks, etc are indeed the same as with the Apple-supplied memory. Specifically, the website claims:

“This is the same memory product you would buy from your system manufacturer (Apple, Compaq, Dell, HP, IBM, Gateway, Sony and others) directly when you buy the system. Life time warranty, name brand memory, brand new date codes.”

Note that since I haven’t actually purchased Mac Pro memory (having no MacPro), I cannot confirm these claims. Nor can I confirm whether the modules have the requisite heat sinks, per Apple specs. Please make your own inquiry before purchasing and satisfy yourself on the heat-sink issue.

The bottom line is you can get the Mac Pro memory for $164 per gigabyte at, as compared with $368 per gigabyte from Apple. That’s $1312 for 8 gigabytes as compared with $2300 when purchased with a build-to-order MacPro—and you can still sell the Apple-supplied 2 X 512MB modules. So the diglloyd advice is to buy your MacPro with 2 X 512, then populate the slots with 1GB modules as your needs require.
