    Oddly enough it's cheaper than a lot of the competing 'Mac compatible' DDR3, at least on Amazon. Might have to finally upgrade!

    As opposed to Mac-incompatible memory?

    Most Macs just take standard DDR3? (Sodimms on the notebooks)

    Well, I suppose if there's one market where you can sell exactly the same product for an inflated price...

    Refreshing to see they're not overpriced, given that they're identical to normal RAM!

    I have Macs at work (2 mac pros and a macbook pro - I work at 2 sites), but PCs at home. Even with 8 and 16GB of RAM in the mac pros, I find them much slower and less stable than my PC at home (also 8GB RAM), and they cost about 4 times as much... As much as I use macs, and I find some aspects of them quite good, I remain baffled why anyone would buy one with their own money

    Who knows, maybe this is the start of "special Mac hardware" being priced more in line with what it really is...
