Phillips #0 with a magnetic tip.I opened my Mac Mini not to long ago, and the only thing I can say is that it can take a little time. I ended up trying and failing to open it about 2 times over a day, but finally got it open. Now I can open it in under 30 seconds. It really just takes that first time.
Besides that, installing the memory is a breeze. The screws are absolutely tiny, so I had to use my moms eye-glass screwdriver. All my others were to large.
If you're buying the new C2D mini, Apple's upgrade to 2MB is $135. Unless you feel comfortable popping open the mini, the extra $40-50 that you pay Apple might be "worth it." Kind of depends on your tech level.I received the announcement of the "new" Mac Mini.
Apple charges far too much money for memory. Can a user upgrade memory in the Mac Mini or is this an Apple-only upgrade?
That is a shame. Must have been a "silent upgrade" (extra RAM) but it never showed up in the Profiler.Is there an issue with Mac Mini (early 2006) ram slots?
My supervisor at work had a mini that had a bad ram slot, and this morning I spoke with my dad only to hear that he had a mini with a bad ram slot.
Unfortunately decided to upgrade after his warranty ran out and he didn't purchase apple care.
I think the slot must have been bad from the factory. It was bought as a refurb and only showed 512mb. When they opened it up this week they found it had two 512mb sticks in it. So the slot must have been dead from the beginning.
I don't know what minis go for in Japan, but I'd say it's a pretty good deal.To all ...
I can get a brand new 9/2007 model Mini w/ these specs :
1.83GHz Intel Core Duo
DDR2 SDRAMメモリ（DIMM x 2）
・80 GB HDD
For $ 500 but I must act fast . Should I grab it with Leopard right around the corner ?
PS I am in Japan and this is a super deal I think .
I need a hand!I just installed a 3GB kit from OWC.
If anyone needs a hand in installing the RAM, I'd be happy to assist.
