    No, your data is stored on your hard drive. Flip it over, pop the case, replace the memory modules and get back on the road. 5 minute job at the most.

    Agreed. Just changed from 4 to 8GB last week in my Mini. Easiest Mac I've ever changed memory on.

    OTOH, I hope you are keeping your pics and important data stored someplace. Catastrophic failure could happen any time.
