|aight, i ordered my mini on feb 7th.
here's what i ordered:
1.25 Ghz/40 gig harddrive/ airport card/ 256 mb of ram.
i was reading about bluetooth cause i didn't know anything about it and decided that i wanted to add that to my order. so i did that last night.
now i'm thinking i want to just go ahead and kick the ram up to 512.
my understanding is that you can't upgrade the ram without voiding the warranty?
so should i call and change the order AGAIN or just wait and upgrade it at my local mac authorized dealer. OR is it really a big deal to upgrade the ram? could i do it myself? I've upgraded ram in a ton of pc's, my emac, my iBook and i even replaced the harddrive in my dual usb iBook.
projected shipping is on or before march 10th and i can't stand the wait!
also why does adding 512 only cost $75
but 1 gig is $325 (shouldn't that be around $150?)
I have 512MB and that's good enough for what I need with my mini. You really need to upgrade from 256MB to make OSX to chug along. One of my fears is that new Mac users will blame the platform for being slow when in fact they only get the standard 256MB. With OS X that's just not enough and will not even be close to what you need for Tiger.
