There are DDR3 RAM modules sold on Amazon (branded by KomputerBay) where it is specified that they are "PC only" and not for Mac. They cost around £41.99 ($68).
The same company has modules with the same exact technical specifications on Amazon, called "for Apple" RAM. They cost significantly more £53.99 ($87).
Apart from the $20 price jump, what could be different? Is this a scam to make Apple users pay more?
