In case you missed last weeks RAM upgrade deal, here are more great prices for 8GB and 4GB kits. It looks like both of these deals expire on the 10th (tomorrow) so if you’re looking for cheap memory upgrades, this is a good time to buy.

The upgrade works for any Mac that allows 8GB of RAM of the following type: PC3-8500 DDR3 1066 MHz SDRAM. This includes the new Mac Mini, iMac, MacBook, and MacBook Pro 13″, MacBook Pro 15″, and MacBook Pro 17″ models.

Update: The price of the 8GB chip went up to $139, it may be cheaper to buy the same kit from Amazon.

If you’re on a machine with 2GB of RAM, you can also grab a great deal on a 4GB upgrade:

The 4GB upgrade is the same kind of RAM as the 8GB kit, and should work on the iMac, Mac Mini, MacBook, and MacBook Pro.

As always, make sure your Mac can accept the memory upgrades as well as the amount of RAM you’re buying. If you’re not sure if a RAM upgrade would benefit you, learn how to know if your Mac needs more memory.

    Kingston RAM is garbage though. I wouldn’t invest even the $58 in Kingston for my Macs.

    Buy the 8 GB if your Mac supports it. If you’re going to upgrade, go all out now to future proof your Mac.

    I bought a 4 GB update for a Mini a while back and now am going for an 8 GB upgrade, in the end it costs twice as much to do these incremental upgrades. Plus I’m going to have 2 GB chips laying around that are useless and practically worthless.
