    I have been looking for a ram upgrade for my Mac Mini... i've been using it with 256 and that is not nearly enough. will this work for my mini? if not anyone have any recomendations? i don't have much money to spend so i think 512 is what i will be getting. thanks for all your help?

    I thought I remembered reading here that, as of yet, there are no third party options for memory in the mini. You have to go through apple.

    Then again, my memory is terrible :rolleyes:


    Also, I don't know if that was installation based (not sure if you can actually open the mini yourself) or compatabiliy based.

    well i know it voids your warrany to do it yourself, i asked the sales guy when i went to purchase the mini over the phone. but it is possible it's standard ram but i know macs sometimes are picky so i was wondering what will work with the mini and if that link i gave is a good choice.

    Yes it will work, and you only void your warranty if you break it when you open it. It's hard to get into though. There are some descriptions of how to open it I don't have the link handy though.

    It looks like a good price. It's cheaper than crucial and It's brand name.

    Found some links. Here and Here

    Do a search there's plenty more.

    Actually the days of Apple specific ram are gone. Macs use standard ram now.
