All very well and good, but wouldn’t cracking the case to install one of these upgrades void one’s AppleCare coverage?


Yea, but they will do it for free at the Apple store.  Just bring your RAM to the Genii.


Put down the crack pipe! Ram in the iMac is the easiest thing to install. My ninty year old mother can install it. And apple gives you the instructions to do it. If you are worried about your Apple Care, keep the apple ram and swap it back in if you have to take in for a repair.


Ummmmm this is a Mac mini, not an iMac we’re talkin about here. WTF are YOU smoking?
