When I saw the advertisement for and read about the Crucial Memory Sweepstakes and that you could win a $10,000 Apple Gift Card for yourself plus a matching $10,000 Apple Gift Card would be donated to TechSoup® Global I just knew I had to sign up.
Memory is about the 2nd most important thing you can add to any computer, it is what allows you to run larger applications, open more applications at the same time and let’s face it your operating system is going to need to consume a massive amount of RAM just by itself.
The sweepstakes has a few questions which I had to research to find the answers (I won’t post them here, do the research!) but I can tell you that they aren’t too hard to find.
The thing I really like about Crucial is they make it easy to find and upgrade or replace the RAM in your system with their Crucial System Scanner.
It doesn’t matter what system you have, PC or Mac you can always use more RAM or faster RAM if your motherboard accepts it and you are upgrading anyway. RAM prices are better than I have ever seen, and I was shocked that you can get 16GB of DDR3 PC3-10600 RAM for less than $160! I remember when just buying 2GB of RAM cost me several hundred dollars less than 5 years ago.
My wife’s computer is choking with only 2GB of RAM and Windows VISTA and is in desperate need of additional RAM. My son’s Dell Inspiron 15 laptop also is has too little RAM and can use an upgrade (wish I could add dedicated video graphics too, but that is another story).
Bottom line: You always need more RAM and by entering the Crucial Memory Sweepstakes you may be lucky enough to win a $10,000 Apple Gift card. As they point out this is enough to buy an Mac for every room in your house! Even if you don’t want to use Mac OS you can win the Mac and install Windows 7 or Windows 8 (when it releases) on it in dual boot!
What would you do if you won a $10,000 Apple Gift card? Share your ideas, I know whatever I did I would have a maxed out 32GB iMac i7 CPU with it and left over money to spare!
