Did you know that your older Intel Core 2 Duo iMac, Macbook, Macbook Pro or Mac Mini can take 4Gb of memory (RAM).
The System Profiler will recognise ALL 4Gb.
There are limitations as to how much the machine will actually use.
Depending on who you ask, your Mac Mini will address up to 3.1 - 3.3Gb.

Kingston DO NOT recommend upgrading the Mac Mini to only 3Gb.
Their testing has shown that using a 1Gb and a 2Gb module in a Mac Mini, causes instability.
Using matched pairs is recommended which is why 4Gb is fine.

You will get the benefits of dual channel performance.
You will see a significant increase in performance.
Your Macbook will fly
You increase your resale value.
Using matched modules is more stable.
Kingston are the WORLD'S No1 Memory Leader
