    Title says it all. Not that I'd need more than 4gb of ram, but I'd like to know if anyone has tried it yet. I might give it a go when I buy mine.

    Barefeats.com tested a unibody MacBook Pro back in December to see if it would accept more that 4GB of RAM. They found that 6GB worked (4GB + 2GB), but 8GB caused system instability. The same configuration also worked in the unibody MacBook. Since the mini is based on the same architecture I assume that same thing applies to it too. Unless they built it off the 17" MBP, which can use 8GB.

    I would imagine it to be 6Mb or just the 4Mb. If it would be the same as the 17" MBP then surely they would mention it?
