So considering that it voids the warranty to open your mac mini yourself, how would you go about getting this into your computer?

midnitevulture, sjpetry: that RAM is a SODIMM module, and it won't fit in either a Mac mini or an iMac G5.

edit: maya, great find! :)

They now corrected the price on the page itself as $189, more expensive but still rather sweet for us europeans... thinking of getting one for my 1,33 powerbook.

The $30 discount is a mail-in rebate. There was a PDF form that you needed to download, complete and mail in to get the $30 back. You will pay $189.99 at checkout. The invoice has to say January 13th in order to get the rebate. I called outpost to see why the rebate is gone from the web site and they said that there's a problem with the PDF rebate form. The product manager for this line comes in to work at 4pm EST and, apparently, only he knows about the rebate for this product. When I called, the customer service rep took my email address and said he would get the product manager to email the rebate form directly to me. If you've already placed your order and didn't get the rebate form from the web site, I suggest you call outpost and talk to customer service to get the rebate form.

I haven't decided if I'm going to place an order yet (although, I may if I get the rebate form), but outpost claims they can ship this memory today (in order to qualify for the rebate) if you order by 11pm EST. I would call to make sure though.

Edit: PS, thanks for the find Maya... this is a pretty sweet deal.

Yes, but if you look at the picture maya posted, it had been $160 BEFORE the rebate.

Last time this was in stock, they refused to send to non-US addresses. I shipped to a friend that I was about to go visit with.
Thanks for the tip, I will ask my friend living in minneapolis whether I can send it to his post address.

They didn't have the rebate. Apparently it was an error on their part, and instead they gave me a credit to my card for the $30! So I got the stick for a $129+ship. Great deal!

Congratulations! It's great when online retailers own up to their mistakes.

Yeah, there's a huge thread about this Outpost 1GB stick of RAM somewhere, and people generally had pleasant things to say. :)

And as someone already pointed out, this is laptop RAM. ;)

OWC sells SODIMM, 200 pin, 1GB of RAM starting at $230 or so. It's OWC branded RAM, but you'd figure that OWC sells so many brands of RAM, and they probably don't "make" their RAM, so they probably just rebrand Samsung RAM or something, as Samsung is one of (or they ARE) the largest maker of RAM in the world.

My point is: I don't know who makes this Outpost RAM, so I just paid a bit more to get more reliable RAM with a better guarantee. Oh, and I don't have to mail in rebates. ;)
