By the way, due to the Release of 10.8.3 Beta 1 on Developer.Apple.Com, I am now back at Mountain Lion. Had to return to Lion or Mountain Lion anyways as my Snow Leopard Disk is 32 Bit Only, and Xcode 4.6 Developer Preview 2 does NOT work with Snow Leopard and I recently had to use XCode 4.6 Developer Preview 2 to Provision my brand new Apple IPad Mini for IOS 6.1 Beta 2.

and you don't think Apple's Bad Relationship with Samsung might have something to do with the High Price of Samsung Ram on Apple's Website? I certainly do.

no, because the ram price has ALWAYS been that high. you could check all the way back to 2000 and it was still probably that high. it has nothing to do with the bad Apple Samsung relationship

ask anyone on here that's used apple products for years and they'll be able to tell you

There are no specific hardware requirements for the ADP besides having a Mac that runs a current version to support Xcode. Anyways, I know hardware and software are not entirely overlapping realms of knowledge but shouldn't you still have at least a basic grasp of it as a developer? The Mac Mini 2010 uses standard DDR3 SODIMMs (the kind that are used in laptops). If you buy some that are "too fast", they will just run at the fastest speed that your Mac Mini supports with no harm done. In any case, you are not the first person to face the dilema of upgrading the RAM in a 2010 Mac Mini, and if your have any doubts the answer is just a google search away. You have plenty of cash to get 8 GB of RAM and an SSD to breath some life into your Mac... so don't waste it by being daft.

Yeah, I noticed that they are charging $300 to Increase the RAM on the Late 2012 Mac Mini to the Maximum Amount of RAM! :-(

That was the Main Reason why I decided to Forego Buying a New 2012 Mac Mini and just boost the RAM and add a SSD like you guys Recommended, Apple is NOT even offering a SSD with the $599 2012 Mac Mini and they are somewhat Expensive on the $799 and $999 2012 Mac Mini's! :-(

yeah, 99% of the time even the "Apple Geniuses" at apple stores will even tell you go ahead and get your ram/hard-drive upgrades from newegg and such, because even they realize that there's no reason to have to pay that much to upgrade parts

What I was saying is in order to participate in the Apple IOS Beta's (like I am doing right now) I have to Register my Apple IOS Devices with the Apple IOS Developer Portal using Xcode. Otherwise, the IOS Beta' s will fail to install properly. Oh and by the way, Although I do NOT have a Developer Education, I do have an IT Background Education even though I am currently Unemployeed (I have a Certification in Computer Networking), however, the College that I attended mainly trained us on Windows 2000 Client and Server OS's. Just FYI.

I also have my own Website where I have set up a Word Press Blog that is Registered and Hosted by Godaddy.com. it' s at both kevinpanzke.com and kevinpanzke.co. Just FYI.
