    I just don't feel comfortable replacing my memory in my Mac Mini myself...and I "assume" genius bars have the same price for doing it (??). So what's the cost for putting 1 Gig of Ram in my PPC 1.5??
    It's a bit of a drive for me to get to one - and I'd like to be prepared for the shock!:eek: TIA

    I believe they will only do it if you purchase the RAM from them, I don't think they'll instal 3rd party RAM for you.

    That's my plan...walkin' in with my checkbook (maybe!). I've never seen anyone say what they charge?

    I'm not quite sure what they'd charge, but they will want to keep it for a few days.

    I would call your Apple Store and find out what they would charge.

    I checked on this for a friend a few months ago, and yes, they won't install any 3rd party RAM at all.

    If you buy RAM from Apple in the store, they will install it at no additional cost, but they charge around $150-200 for 1GB for a PPC Mac mini (as of last fall's prices anyway) which is quite expensive.
