I broke down and ordered, thanks. Hope it fits my kids 2012 MBPs.

Just found out their school is giving everyone chomebooks if you dont have a laptop. I said "awesome" you guys can use your MBPs -- and then I got a chorus of -- the battery doesnt last, its heavy, too big for my backpack, it slow (SSDs they arent) -- and the real kicker "my friends all have new macs".

To which I tossed out the old "if your friends jumped off the empire state building..." old fogey smiley

One has 4 GB, the other 8, and they prob dont need more... but hoping it will help with resale in a few months.

thanks again for the tip!

It will work in the 2012s

"and the real kicker "my friends all have new macs".

oh, OUCH!! lol

"if your friends jumped off the empire state building..."

that never worked! I would say, but why would my friends jump on the Empire State Building - that makes no sense. Wanting a new MBP - THAT makes sense. :-)

Ha!

Their 2012s are very clean, one has a small dent, but they have been in plastic cases since we bought them used -- so still look great. Sadly, looks like they wont run Big Sur... hoping with the SSD + extra ram they sell for $400+

Damn! I missed out on this. I would have loved the upgrade on my MBP 2012 and Mac Mini 2012. If anyone ordered extra, please let me know.

Says "Out of stock" when I look at it.

Also noticed that the specs in the ebay listing say that it's ECC Memory, Hal is there any you can check to see if that's actually true?

I went to the PO to pick up a couple of Flat Rate boxes and my POB.

It must have been delivered after I left.

This should fit my 2015 iMac, but I'd have ordered another set if I'd realized it would fit my 2012 mini.

It's at 12G as one 8G stick has apparently go bad and will have to go back to Crucial.

It's nice to get in on a deal instead of missing it...

...by that much.

Thank you hal.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Not nearly as enticing but if you need an 8GB kit of a little slower RAM from the same seller:
[www.ebay.com]

Tempting as it was, I didn't get in on the deal hal posted because I didn't have a use for it. My only machine that could use it already has 16GB.

My bad -- I assumed that because the listing is still up, the deal was still active.



It is what it is.

Hal,

Thank you so much for suggesting the RAM. It arrived in yesterday's mail and I just installed it this AM in a 2012 MacBook Pro. Joy emanates from the screen!

Thank you again!

Woohoo! Thanks Hal. Got mine today. Haven't decided yet where it'll go... 2014 Mac Mini or 2012 MBP probably.
