What is Ramjet+

Beyond the Apple Specification

Here at Ramjet, we are proud of the fact that we can make your Mac operate better and faster than Apple says it can. Yes, you heard it right: we can make your Mac perform better than the manufacturer's specifications. It's a bold claim, we know, and one that brings in calls from concerned customers every day: "How can you possibly do better than Apple? After all, they made the machine."

Frozen Documentation

The answer is actually fairly simple. When Apple designs a new machine, they test and document in great detail the specifications of that machine. This documentation (which is "frozen" and published when a new system is released) informs their staff and customers about the system's capabilities. These specifications are determined by comprehensive testing of components that are available on the market at the time of the system's release. And herein lies the problem...

New Technology

As you know, technology marches on very quickly. New components continue to be developed, even after Apple "freezes" a system's specifications. New technology (in the form of higher capacity RAM modules) may be developed that exceeds the specifications in Apple's documentation.

Ramjet Labs

Here at Ramjet we continue to test new technology for compatibility with the full range of existing Macs. When we find modules that pass our strenuous testing procedures, we make them available to you. And when they exceed the manufacturer's specifications, we get excited because we know that we are delivering great value to our customers.

Introducing Ramjet+

The list of machines that have Ramjet+ options includes six different Mac Mini models, more than a dozen different MacBook Pro and iMac models, nearly every Mac Pro model ever released, and many more.

You can rest assured the information you find on our site will always be up-to-date and based on recent testing. If you're ever uncertain about your machine's actual memory capabilities, you can also give us a call at 1-800-831-4569 and we'll be happy to show you just how far your system can go.
