Hye.

I am sort of considering of getting a Mac mini. I know, and you know, that apple rips you off on ram. So i was just going to get the basic 256, then buy a 512 stick form some where else. But It says DDR333 SDRAM. Whats SDRAM mean? I was also wondeirng if this would work and fit http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...p?EdpNo=513669.

Thanks a bunch

Wait... Forget that link. I just found this. http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...3&sku=P56-1521This is SDRAM... is says it's PC133, is that the same as DDR333?

Thanks again...

No, that is not the same. PC133 SDRAM is old, DDR333 SDRAM is PC2700. PC133 is single data rate, or one operation per clock cycle, where as DDR (Double Data Rate) performs two operations per clock cycle. The moral of the story is, you want either PC2700, or DDR333. The real question though is what size, ram module you need, I do not know if the Mac mini uses notebook memory, or standard size memory???

Everyhting we already know is on there. But it was unteresting reading. Thanks anyways!

I found this... http://www.apple.com/ca/macmini/design.html it shows a picture of the inside at the bottom. It doesn't look like note book memory. Does SDRAM come in different sizes besides notebook and desktops? Anyone know anything else. ?

Thanks.

Good question...

@shaun89:
You already got all the answers you need, the Mac mini uses PC2700 DDR-SDRAM which is exactly the same than DDR333 (DDR=Double Data Rate). It's not PC133, because that's Single Data Rate RAM, which wouldn't even fit physically anyway...
It's the exact same RAM the actuall eMac, the last iMac G4 and the last PowerMac G4 MDD used...

What else do you need to know?!?

PS: Changing the memory yourself on the Mac mini will void your warranty...including AppleCare, in case you've bought that too.

Yep. I made that mistake with my iBook G4. I didn't do enough research first, and ASSumed I could install it. When I bought my iMac G5, I did get it installed.
