Warning for 2013,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crucial ram memory 16GB kit (2 x 8GB) DDR3 PC3-12800,1600MHz for 2012 Apple Macbook Pro's, 2012 iMac's, and 2011 / 2012 Mac mini's (Personal Computers)
I ordered this for my iMac which was a 2012 model. It wasn't compatible. I checked the serial number of the RAM that came with the Crucial website. It wasn't compatible. I ordered another set and returned the first, hoping it was a simple error, but the second set serial number was also not compatible. I think crucial ram has to be clearly mapped to your imac so just be aware. On a positive note Amazon refunded both without issue.

Err, yes it is compatible.
Serial numbers cover batches not specifications. It's the spec not a specific serial number for which you should be looking. Of course, Crucial's website is pretty misleading in this regard. It's always be a bugbear of mine that Crucial seem to want to 'mislead' customers by emphasising information which is less relevant to selection, leaving customers confused or buying something more expensive than they need. However, there is no doubting Crucial quality!
