Ars Technica’s generous summer giveaway: Win 16GB of Crucial RAM

Enlarge

One of my biggest technological regrets is buying a 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro with just 8GB of RAM. I looked at the price difference—it was another £200 to get 16GB—and stupidly thought that 8GB would be enough for me. I really did think that 8GB would be enough for a few Google Chrome tabs and a Terminal window. How wrong I was.

Anyway, enough about my poor life choices. Today I’m excited to announce that we have 10 kits of 16GB of Crucial RAM to give away to Ars Technica readers. To be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is provide an e-mail address; if you win, we’ll get in touch sometime next week for your postal address.

Excitingly, instead of just giving away 16GB of generic RAM, winners will receive RAM that’s appropriate for their system: desktop users will get DIMMs, and laptop owners will get SO-DIMMs. If you have a Retina MacBook Pro like me, with soldered-on RAM and no expansion slots, you’re shit out of luck on the upgrade front—but you should still enter the giveaway! You can use the RAM for a new PC build, or your next laptop.
