I have an early 2009 Mac Mini Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz DDR3 (model

is 4GB. On their website Crucial maintain that 8GB RAM is the maximum. Can
anyone confirm that 8GB functions in this machine?
Yes, although I've got the 'Late 2009' model here now, my research found
that the 'Early 2009' model can also go to 8GB. However, you need to
install the EFI firmware update for it. AFAIK, the 'Late' model is the
same as the 'Early', but already has the update applied.
I can confirm that the 'Late' model works with more than 4GB though, as
mine is happily running on 5GB.
FWIW, you can just buy a single stick of 4GB, and add it to one stick of
whatever you already have installed, if you wanted to save any money.
The speed difference between using interleaved memory or more memory is
Thanks for that. I'm much obliged to you.
