Other than Crucial who else has the best prices and quality? I'm looking to get a 1GB stick for my 1.25 Mac mini.

Pricewatch may get you the best deal. I would research seller before buying.

I got my 1 gig stick at www.outpost.com. It's a Kingston. It was $164.99. There's a rebate on it as well taking the price down to $134.99.
That's the cheapest I could find. They offer cheap shipping too.

Try checking the Upgrades forum...

I know coast memory is selling 1GB modules for $185.
http://www.18004memory.com/category.asp?catid=9&subcatid=912

But, if you look at PowerMac G5 memory you can find a PC3200/400MHZ/CL3 1GB for $6 less (PC3200/400mhz/CL3 is what the Mini's are shipping with even though the specs say PC2700/333mhz). I ordered this one and will install it when my Mini gets here this week.

It's PC2700. I haven't installed it yet. My Mini comes tomorrow and I'll install it then. More later...

I can't find it either. I think the rebate on that ram stick must be over. I went to Kingston's site and they had no info either. I also see that Outpost has upped the price by $5 as well. Sorry, I didn't mean to give out inaccurate information. Boy, things change fast out there!

That's cool! You have to be quick with some of these bargains. I go to www.Techbargains.com to look for things from time to time. If you see any more deals let me know. I'm looking to uprgade my Mini when it comes so in the meantime I'm looking for good deals on memory.

www.slickdeals.net and www.bensbargains.net are other good deal sites. I'll post back when I get my ram installed and let you know how it is. But if you can get it for $130 or whatever after a rebate, it might be worth trying to track that deal down.

Crucial has always worked well for me. They don't really have the best prices but not the worst either. None of the RAM I've ever bought from them has failed me and that is one reason why I would recommend them.

FYI, the PowerMac G5 Memory above (2nd URL) works great! I've had no issues w/ it in my Mini.
