yes, i'm generalizing, but some linux advocate was trying to bundle a high end apple monitor just to bump up the price of the mini, and you are doing it with ram, so my comments aren't unjustified...

TravelinMan G5 iMac is 560 more than the Mini. A Mac monitor is 68 plus 19.00. Buy a decent 17...

Crucial is only used by the uneducated, it's a marketing firm, not a true ram vendor... all the ramseeker vendors are "KNOWN"... they all work exactly the same, with exactly the same warranty... lifetime...

Okay, you've loose the $7, that's fine...

Because you are LOOSING the 256MB if you let Apple do it!!! Do you think they send along the 256MB they took out in a nice shiny box? No, they never put it in... in the first place... You LOOSE $30 bucks this way... plus the $7 you wanted to pay for marketing... My way is to pay the $65 then get the $30 back from the extra 256MB, or cost to me $35 for a 512MB. Maybe I've just sold, installed more ram than you over the years, i know all the tricks... kinda like the support problem you had, and I wouldn't of... (smirk) all i'm saying is there's no reason to pay apple over double for the exact same ram...

Where? you debunked, nothing... you said you'd pay $7 extra for nothing, not me...

Ah, but I can sell that for $30 with no ebay, more like $50 on a good day, $30 on a normal day... eBay, is $30 also if you know what you are doing. An expensive Putty Knife is $3, but at flea markets they are $1 brand new. Walmart, maybe $2... I'll check next time to be sure...

no, i do see that, and $140 is A LOT on a $499 item... I guess what I've never understood is why stuff...

Those are pretty big ifs... warranty is warranty... plus the chances of bad ram while higher than in the old days, is still very low.

Nah, you can sell 256MB for $30, here's one that went for $35, plus the guy made $2.50 on shipping... with eBay, just say it's genuine Apple Ram, (which it is) and that's another $5...

Oxford You quote US prices to a person from the UK. At least get the prices right. In your currency, Mini's start at $640 (UK) $668 plus 1...

339

Actually the Mini isn't that much more in the UK, (don't worry, i was surprised too) It's 339 or about $641... and that's at full apple retail, which you can get it for less by going mail order or uk ebay...

all for now,

oxford
