Yes, you can do it yourself without voiding the warranty. But Apple does recommend you go to an authorized dealer b/c its not to easy.TrumanApple said:

Are you for certain, dave?daveway00 said:NO! It will NOT void your warranty.
this is closer to what I've been hearing. It won't void your warranty to open the mini but if you break anything while on the inside then you've just voided your warrantybellychris said:I could be wrong but to me it looks like it will only void the warrenty if the person does damage to it while upgrading it. I guess the problem is the risk of breaking the mini while installing ram is greater. Again, I could be wrong
Well, as a computer technician AND automobile technician (Yes, these days, they are much more similair than they sound, due to current automobile technology), I can give you a fairly reasonable answer to this type of question, which I get on a DAILY basis.TrumanApple said:
Apple says that fitting user-installable parts won't void the warranty, but it also says that there are no user-installable parts in a Mac mini. Which kind of makes you think that according to the letter of the warranty, opening it up and doing ANYTHING in their is a violation of the warranty. The problem is that in a practical sense that doesn't make sense - after all, how could Apple actually TELL if you, they, or an authorized agent was responsible for installing add-ins or swapping out legitimate upgrades. The answer is that they can't, hence the more pragmatic attitude that if you don't break anything you'll be OK.rickvanr said:It will not void your warranty! If you break something, then it's your buck. But, how is that different then any other situation?
