HMT325S6BFR8C compatible with Intel NUC? [YES]

Spare memory is always a good thing :-)

I have two Intel NUC’s that were equipped with 16GB of RAM (2x8GB DDR SODIMMs). The little PCs were originally intended for server use where the relatively vast amount of memory would have been useful. The RAM kits were also purchased when prices were rather absurdly low (around $60-$80). Unfortunately, since then RAM prices have  doubled. These two machines never actually made it into server usage. They ended up being used around the house for a simple HTPC setup and

Once released from the adhesive tape, gently slide the keyboard back and out (be careful with the ribbon cable underneath the keyboard!)

Here are photo instructions for upgrading the RAM on a Lenovo Yoga 13. Surprisingly, there are not any screws to be removed. Instead, the keyboard is secured via double-sided tape. You must pry up the rear edges of the keyboard and then slide the keyboard back and off, revealing the memory slot below. UPDATE: Some readers have asked what memory I recommend for upgrading the Yoga 13. My recommendation is 8GB of 1600MHz DDR3 Corsair memory because it offers a lifetime warranty, solid performance

Upgrade Acer Aspire AS7560 memory

UPDATE: Readers have asked what memory I recommend for upgrading the AS7560 to 8GB of RAM.

Remove the old RAM and install the new memory

UPDATE: Many readers have asked what memory I recommend for upgrading the A0722. My recommendation is 4GB of 1066MHz DDR3 Kingston memory because it offers a lifetime warranty, solid performance AND it is only about $22 with free shipping! Another great way to improve performance is to replace the AO722′s slow hard drive with a SSD. The Crucial M4 128GB (which includes a data transfer kit) or the Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB (drive only) are my top two choices. They both offer 3 year warranties along with good
