    It has had Vista support for quite some time now.

    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.

    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.

    No problem.

    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. :D

    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.
