Having installed extra memory in my iMac 21.5 , wanted to do the same for my wife's identical computer. Hoever, on the Crucial site there's a warning  relating to installation of memory for Mountain Lion use. This requirement ( to follow steps in an Apple article,) has made me hesitate about ordering.


Can anyone tell me if the procedure for installation into a mid-2011 iMac has changed? If so, is it more difficult than the previous method?


Any advice would be welcomed.

    If your wife's iMac is a 2011 machine it's a very straight forward process and assuming your iMac is also a mid 20111 21.5" iMac the process will be identical. Just make sure the RAM you purchase fit the specifications Apple, Crucial and OWC (www.macsales.com) specificy. DO NOT INSTALL incorrect RAM.

    Thank you, sir. Am assuming that Crucial know what they're doing in recommending  those 2 four-gig modules; last time was a snap, so will proceed.


    Appreciate your input.

    Your welcome, Crucial is a trusted brand. I frequently recommend both they and OWC brands.
