I just ordered a 2012 Mini mid level, standard configuration. (4G RAM, 1T HDD 4x2.3 i7). Getting it from Mac Mall and because I have 3 Win 7 PCs with stuff in/on them I am getting Parallels 8 as well. Good deal I think? $50 for Parallels and a $50 rebate. I am going to order 16G RAM (just because it's so darn cheap)and I have a question or 2. Is it better to install the RAM upon opening the box or run the Mini with 4g first? Does it matter the order I add Par 8 and the RAM?
