I just installed 4 gb of Kingston ram BUT in doing so I managed to snap off the little prongs on the first layer of the ram holders in my mini. So...the bottom layer is fine it's just that the top layer doesn't snap down into place. The ram is recognized and my mini is working beautifully but I did just destroy my warranty didn't I?

The warranty for that part at thee very least, I would think. I'm not certain if it affects the rest though.

Hey, I did not knowyou could install 4Gb of Ram in the mini Shocked

You can install 4gb of ram in the Core 2 Duo mini but only 3gb will be addressable.

No, according to Apple only the parts you break during a self upgrade/install are voided, the rest is A-OK . I guess this might be because they built the mini to covert PC users, and most of them are used to messing around with their machines.

While this is correct in the sense that only collateral damaged parts are void of warranty, there's also some caveats. Spoll broke the prongs on the RAM slots, which are a part of a larger assembly that Apple defines as the logic board. Apple lists the logic board, which contains the processor, RAM, and main circuit board as one single part number, which now is without any warranty and is unfortunately the most expensive part of the machine.

As usual. CC is 100% correct on this.

Back in the days of drawer-type optical drives, one of my clients dropped something heavy on his machine while the drawer was open. When he called he asked if he had voided the warranty on his computer (a 9500 IIRC) because he forced the drawer back into the housing to see if it would still work. I told him that I could not replace the drive under warranty, but that if the computer operated as it should once I installed the new drive all would be OK.

The cynic in me, though, believes that Apple intentionally uses those flimsy plastic memory clips for nefarious reasons.

Yeah, I'm sweating while working on the mini. You have to be very delicate yet some parts some strength to get removed. It is a fine line. Thankfully, I've not broken anything yet.

Yes, I had a feeling it would be voided. Just a dumb impatient move on my part.

However, I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed.

On a side note, this machine is unbelievable with the 4gb upgrade. I've upgraded from a 1.25 ghz G4 Mini 512 mb to a 2.0 Core2Duo with 4 gb and I work heavily in PS and Illustrator. I was working on a 200mb file in PS and saved it in a matter of seconds and that's with Firefox and Mail running in the bkgd!

Anyone on the fence thinking about upgrading from 1 gig to 4 I highly recommend it!

Thanks for your input folks.
