    Mac Mini and memory upgrades? Quick Q's
    Hi,

    I saw this topic in a previous thread, but I still have a few more questions...

    Apple's website states the mac mini uses 256mb DDR 333 SDRAM. If you wanted to upgrade using their site it still uses the DDR 333 SDRAM.

    I'm looking at my mac mini's memory chip right now, and it has PC3200 256mb DDR 400 stamped on it.

    I went to the www.crucial.com, and clicked on the categories relating to the mini. It had the PC2700 as an upgrade.

    With that in mind should I upgrade to 1gig PC2700 DDR 333SDRAM, or 1gig PC3200 DDR 400? Would there be a significant performance difference? Does it really matter?

    I wanted to us kingston memory.

    Your input would be greatly appreciated...

    Thanks,

    Vake J.

    If you use PC3200 ram, the mini will only use it at 333mhz. So no it doesn't matter. By the way, who makes the strip of 256 ram that your mini came with?

    The ones in the mac mini already are probably de -branded... So there might not be a way to find out.

    I will let you know later today...

    Any issues with using Kingston memory for an apple? I don't know much about memory, but they seem reputable. I see their memory advertised on many different sites. Just curious...

    Thanks,

    Specs:
    iBook 1.33 Ghz, 768 RAM
    Kingston is great memory and is perfect for Macs.

    But if you want to save a little money I would go for Orcalogic Memory.
    They are the same people that supply Kingston . It's exactly the same yet a little cheaper.

    Hope this helps
