How much RAM do you have in your Mac mini?

I have 2GB of RAM in my 1.66GHz CD Mac mini. The two 1GB sticks are OWC-branded.

My G4 mini is maxed at 1 gb, but I'm not sure I would put any more than that in an Intel mini. If I did, it would be either to speed up Rosetta apps like PowerPoint, or to allow Parallels to run decently. Anyone out there running Parallels in a mini with only 1 gb RAM? How does it do?

768MB is a valid memory configuration, you may want to add that to the poll, plus that's what my Mini has Smile

I have 512, I hope to upgrade for when I really need it, I have no use in upgrading right now. Also, when the price of RAM decreases.

I have 2Gb in my mini, recently upgraded from 1Gb. I ran Parallels w/ 1Gb and it worked fine. It runs better w/ 2Gb since I upped the ram allocation to Parallels. If you're on the fence about upgrading an Intel mini, do it.

Not to push you into anything, but right now, the price of RAM is very low, and it's unlikely to get lower.

I purchased both my minis fully loaded with RAM from Apple.

When I do buy third-party RAM for installation by me, I have always used Kingston. Their RAM is in most of my Macs, and I have never had a single compatibility or performance issue.
