I finally got 'round to doing the RAM upgrades on my and my wife's Minis this morning. Installed the 2GB kit into mine and installed the 1GB from mine into hers. It's nerve wracking removing the outer case on these, simply because it takes more force than you're comfortable with exerting and the "cracking" noises they make. Once past that, it's all sweetness and light. laugh

Oh, does anyone have a need for the two 256MB sticks I removed from the wife's Mini? (667MHz DDR2 SDRAM)

They are practically worthless now. smile

I would keep the stock ram .... if you have to get service it's nice to be able to put it back in so they can't claim it's your third-party ram causing the problem.

Bah! I service my own, if it's RAM or the HDD. If the MB or some other component goes out, it's cheaper to just get another refurbed Mini. wink
