Lowest Cost Ever 8GB RAM Upgrade from OWC

In case you missed the big news back in late May, NewerTech re-entered the RAM market in a big way with a huge savings splash on DDR3 4GB modules with kits up to 16GB.

Today, they made an even bigger splash with a “cannonball” move; the NewerTech NuRAM 8GB (4GB x 2) PC8500 DDR3 SO-DIMM Kit is now just $227.99.

To make the deal even better, customers can trade in their existing memory for up to $50 cash-back trade-in rebate reducing the final cost to as low as $177.99. Compared to the cost of Apple factory upgrading from 4GB to 8GB, that’s a savings of over 55%!

These memory kits are compatible with select 2009 & Later Apple iMac, Mac mini, MacBook, and MacBook Pro models – as well as PCs which support 8GB (or more) memory and use PC8500 DDR3 SO-DIMM 1066MHz 204 pin modules. See the online description for a full compatibility guide.

NewerTech NuRAM is fully Mac and PC tested/certified and comes backed by a Lifetime Replacement Warranty. Delivery is available for free on this memory set as well as any order with item(s) totally $199 or more. Freight starts from under $2 for orders under $199.

So what are you waiting for? Dive into the deep end of the performance pool and upgrade the memory in your Mac today! And with the savings over factory, you can enjoy some other summer “memory” deals…like a Kitchen Sink.

    • Well there ‘ya go then…just out of the blocks so to speak, NuRAM is $152 lower cost than a major retail outlet…and who knows what quality that is…or support level, etc.!

    • The OWC brand is our normal offering of memory and carries a lifetime advanced replacement warranty. If you need your OWC brand memory replaced, we will ship to you the same or next business day. This option offers the least amount of downtime in the event of memory failure.

      The NuRAM brand is our value line memory offering and carries a lifetime standard warranty. If you need your NuRAM brand memory replaced, we will process the replacement after we receive the defective memory back.

      As far as the memory itself goes, both are thoroughly in-house lab tested to ensure high-quality, compatibility and reliability.
