Default Mini 10v RAM Questions - 01-15-2010, 07:56 PM

What type of ram does it take?
Is it worth upgrading?
Will it make much of a difference?

I have seen videos on youtube etc about upgrading.

Thanks in advance for answering questions.

Be advised when running 2gb of ram many people see an increase in heat coming from their 10v's

True, but there are also a fair number who say the heat was equally bad at 1Gb. If the CPU throttles correctly, heat shouldn't be a major concern. Perhaps installing the extra 1Gb somehow messes with SpeedStep?

To OP: an extra Gb of RAM will result in much snappier response. RAM upgrades are the single most cost-effective way to increase the responsiveness of a system.
