That's a pretty good deal for 2GB. Crucial is asking $188 for 1GB.

That is pretty good. I have read a report from Macworld that it is more difficult to access the new RAM slots on the new Mini.

My question, is that if you do a self-upgrade (RAM) on the new Intel Mini will it void the factory warranty? I cannot remember where, but I read an article about the new Intel Minis that mentioned something to the affect that the new Mac Mini is not user serviceable.

I will post if I find it..

I can't see why. It didn't void your warranty the first time around.

But then again the new RAM location is in a more intricate location. You have to remove more of the computer to get to it. Which could lead to more chance of damaging of the internal computer components.

Well at least I'm sure that's how Apple would put it.

Exactly Socomraider. I swear I read this somewhere.. I am positive that the article refrenced the fact that Apple now considers the new Mini "not user serviceable"...
I am sure that we will hear more about this subject in the days to come.
