OWC Offers More Memory Choices for OS X Mountain Lion Users
While Apple's official minimum RAM requirement for OS X Mountain Lion is 2GB, industry experts agree 4GB of RAM is the minimum that should be installed for optimum performance of typical daily computer usage. For more advanced uses such as graphics production, A/V editing, and/or running a virtual machine, 8GB to 16GB of RAM is highly recommended.

OWC – The Trusted Name in Mac Memory
OWC memory upgrades are available from 16MB to 128GB for nearly every current and past Apple notebook and desktop computer manufactured during the past two decades, including Mac Pro Xeon, iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro, PowerMac, Xserve, iBook, and PowerBook computers. By maintaining an active state-of-the-art test lab, OWC ensures its memory upgrades offer the highest product quality and reliability and backs them with a Lifetime Advance Replacement Warranty and Money Back Guarantee.
