Default RAM upgrade in Los Angeles - 12-20-2009, 09:05 PM

Does anyone know of a reputable place in Los Angeles I can get 2G of RAM installed in Los Angeles for a reasonable price?

I purchased my son a Dell mini 10v and had to get the base 1G configuration to get it in time for Christmas. Given I have a mini 9 I though the RAM upgrade would be simple and I would just order the RAM and have it delivered to him in LA and he could drop it in. Now that I have seen the mini 10v in person and googled for the instructions on how to upgrade the RAM I am pretty sure my plan is not going to work :-).

So I am looking for somewhere he can take the mini 10v and get upgraded to 2G for a fair price, I am thinking somewhere around $100 seems fair. Anyone know of anywhere?

If not, then I suppose I will return the machine to Dell and try and custom order one with 2G already installed, although today that does not seem possible for some reason. Can you get 2G installed from Dell directly?

Thanks and hope everyone is enjoying the holidays.

guess it depends on whether or not you want OSX, if you do you have no choice it must be the 10v, but if you dont, you can get the Mini 10 with ubuntu on it and opt for the 2gb, you can also get the (HD screen,Bluetooth,TV tuner..all of which are not available with the 10v)..and when you get it just reformat the drive, load which ever version of windows you want, and *poof* you have windows with 2gb...but the point is moot if you want OSX....just my 0.02..

rrfranczak3, thanks for the reply and that is definitely something to think about if I can't get the mini 10v I have upgraded. I didn't really look at the regular mini 10 because I always thought it might be interesting to try Mac OS X at some point. At the moment, I am really liking Ubuntu Netbook Remix personally, although I am trying to set my son up with Windows 7 and 2G of RAM seems like something that will really help.

I would think that a local PC repair shop, armed with the instructions in this forum, would be willing to do this for you. You'd have to ask what they'd charge.
