Take a look at the Memory selections themselves. See something Wroung? You Should. Half the Memory that the Memory Selector is offering me is Laptop Memory, Error, Wrong Type, am I supposed to feel comfortable ordering RAM from a Company that has a Strict No Returns Policy, when their Memory Selector offers me 50% of the wrong Memory Type? I don't think So! No way in he-Double-Hockey-Stick.

As I said in the other Tread, I am still a Novice regarding Mac's and knowing about Mac Hardware, that was just something else I did NOT know about Mac's, as right now I am using my Mac mainly for Beta Testing OSX 10.8.3, and iOS 6.1 Beta 2. Just FYI.

Your search was almost perfect however you forgot that I said that I have a 2.4 GHZ Intel Core 2 Duo Processor, NOT 2.66 GHZ, the Crucial Website did tell me what I need, however and I think that I will buy it from them seeing how Newegg.com has a Exchange Only Return Policy. Thank you for your help. as for the RAM, I just got the 8 GB's delivered today by FedEx, and decided that it would be pointless trying to return something that was purchased with a Gift Card and/or they may NOT even accept the Return since it was placed 100% Fully with a Gift Card so I just plain went ahead and Installed the RAM. The RAM was by Samsung, by the way, so you can blame Samsung, NOT Apple for the fact that Store.Apple.Com is charging $200 U.S.A. dollars for 8GB's of RAM. Just FYI.

your cpu clock speed doesn't effect what SSDs are compatible, i just selected one of the 2010 models as that's all the deeper i needed to get the right ssd results

and no, it's completely on apple for the high ram price, I can say this with certainty because most OEMs use Samsung ram (actually as far as I'm aware samsung only sells their ram to OEMs)

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.

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.

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
