Hi,
This week i'm gonna get rid of the poxy 256 Mb ram in my mini and stick 1G in it. Can i just do a straight swap or do i need to tell the mac it has new ram?
Any help would be fab.
Ta Warlock Very Happy

Straight swap. One of my favorite utilities is the Activity Monitor. After the swap, open it up and Activity Monitor will show you how much of the 1 GB is being used, and no more paging out due to low memory! Enjoy.

Take a look at MenuMeters. It's what I use and sure beats digging around trying to find Activity Monitor.

I always keep the "Activity Monitor" app running on mine. It's more in-depth than that widget. You can find it in your Utilities folder.
