    Mac minis cannot handle 4 GB of memory (most recent models can support up to 2 GB). Sorry. :(

    mine can take 3, but ive seen many reports you can put in 4 for dual channel and it just wont use all of it.

    Mini Core2Duos can take 2 Gb modules. 3 - 3.3 Gb usable if 2 x 2 Gb are installed.

    I was using the crucial memory advisor tool and it said a max of 2 GB. :confused:
