Is this going to work if i have a Mac mini?
It has had Vista support for quite some time now.
Make sure you have plenty of RAM though...
As far as I understand the Mac mini can' have more than 2gb - can it take more any other way?
The current Core 2 Mac mini supports 3 GB of RAM (2 GB + 1 GB).
Where did you hear that- Apple states a maximum of 2gb?!
The mini can still accept 3 GB of RAM.
Where do u see the option for 3gb?
Apple doesn't offer 3 GB of RAM but it does support it.
I'm happy to say you were right and I thank you for pointing that out - it's a great help! I wonder why i can't see that stated anywhere on the Apple's website but I did find it on other sites. I also see references to support for 4gb!
OWC sells 3 GB kits. I believe there are a few conflicting reports about 4 GB support as well. The operating system may report 4 GB as available but the 945GM chipset limits you to 3-3.25 GB.
The only problem with the 3 GB upgrade is that Apple doesn't offer it directly so you have to open up your Mac mini or get a technician to do it.
It is cheaper to buy your own RAM though then from Apple.
Thanks for helping out, you're very kind - I'll take your advice....
The Mac mini is a great machine if you know how to customize it yourself.
I'm not a afraid to pop the top off and hack it.
How else can you upgrade it? And why doesn't Apple say it's 3gb really?
I have no idea why Apple is silent about 3 GB in the Core 2 Duo Macbook and Mac mini.
The only option is to install it after market for 3 GB.
