How to expand the RAM memory of Mac Mini 2018

For a few days, the new and renewed MacMini range, along with the also renewed MacBook Air is now available for sale. One of the problems we faced in the previous generation of Mac Mini, we found it in that the RAM memory was soldered to the board, which prevented expanding it once we had purchased the device.

However, the hard drive if we could change it for a higher capacity one. With the new model, the tables have turnedSo if we can expand the RAM but we cannot expand the storage space by changing the hard drive for another. If you want to expand the RAM memory of your Mac Mini 2018, without paying the abusive Apple prices, here is how to do it.

As expected, the user community that has acquired this model has already got down to work to show us which process we must follow in order to expand the memory of the Mac Mini 2018 range. As we can in the video, the process is somewhat laborious, but with a little patience and the necessary tools, we can do it without any problem and saving a great deal of money.

Mac Mini 2018 comes from the factory with 8GB of RAM. If we want to expand it when we make the purchase, Apple offers us the following prices:

  • 16 GB for 240 euros more.
  • 32 GB for 720 euros more.
  • 64 GB for 1.680 euros more.

Keep in mind that the memory used by the Mac Mini 2018 is DDR4, so any other type of memory will not be compatible. At Amazon, without going any further, we have at our disposal a large number of DDR4 memory modules at much cheaper prices than those that Apple offers us when buying this model.
