    Intel mini's, ram upgrade
    Do the Intel Mini's have 1 slot or 2 for ram? I'm getting one from a friend that only has 512megs of ram in it.. Want to know if I have to buy a 1gig or just a 512 stick to upgrade it..

    Specs:
    17" 2.8ghz Macbook Pro, 32GB iPhone 4
    It comes with 256mb in both memory banks.

    Best bet is to just drop the $ for two 1gb sticks of ram, for each slot.

    That is what I plan on doing with my new Mac Mini.







    And come a month or two...

    Does the chipset do some kind of interleaving with 2 sticks? I'd like to just buy a 1gig for now, and maybe another in the future when my budget allows, would I kill some performance by running 1 stick?

    They use dual channel RAM. Better stick with two identical chips.

    Just upgraded to 2GB today!

    Well worth the $240 ($220 after mail-in rebate) for the two 1GB sticks.

    From the local CompUSA no less.
