Crucial has 4 gigs for $30 US, but 8 gigs is only $46 US. I'd do the 8 gigs.

You will be removing the two 1 gig chips that come with it and putting in two 4 gig chips.

It's really easy to do, the bottom plate pops right off. Don't buy it through Apple or whoever you get it from, go with Crucial. Apple wants $100 for 4 gigs, and $300 for 8 gigs, ridiculous.

Kingston is practically right up there with Crucial. Neck and neck.

Go for price, it's all the same basically. Crucial doesn't make the chips that go on the sticks, they get them from a subsidiary of theirs, Micron, neither does Kingston, and Kingston gets their chips from different manufacturers. Only a handful of manufacturers make the actual chips that go on the RAM sticks.

What is important to me if they both are compatible with the Mac Mini I own. Not really the logos involved. thanks
