Just wanted to let everyone know I successfully upgraded my Core Duo mini to 2 gigs of ram for a pretty decent price:

http://www.buy.com/prod/kingston-2gb-2-x-1gb-pc2-5300-667mhz-200-pin-sodimm-ddr2-laptop-memory/q/loc/101/204884017.html

I bought two kits: one for my mini and one for my wife's MacBook. Works great on both.

I didn't notice a huge perofmance increase other than less spinning wheel and maybe some faster loading times. Not sure if this is a great deal for a 2 gig kit but I thought I would share.

Hi all,

I decided I wasn't feeling too brave about opening my mac mini case and poking around in the wiring, so I took my mac mini to a local store here in Atlanta (Onyx) and had them upgrade it. They charged me $100 for the 2GB memory plus the upgrade, and gave me back my 2 512MB chips. I felt it was a pretty good deal if someone isn't too brave about poking around in the system. As it was, during the upgrade one of the fan cables came loose, and my mac mini sounded like a small helicopter. I took it back and they fixed it, no problemo.

Just thought I'd share my good experience. Having 2GB is way cool as I can now run parallels (with Win XP Pro), Firefox, a couple other small apps, and World of Warcraft without stuttering.

Tim

If you're a bit skeptical about opening your mini, if you can find someone to do it at a reasonable price, then that is way to go. If the labor part was reasonable it's worth the piece of mind. If the fan sensor is not completely seated before putting things back together, that's what happens. Same thing happened to mine when I picked it up after a repair by Apple. Rather than taking it back, I just popped it open and reseated the sensor. Since I had already upgraded the RAM twice, it was a piece of cake.

The extra RAM will help even if the difference isn't easy to notice at first. I just upgraded my new MacBook to 4GB and there is a big difference.
Have fun with your mini.
