Default Memory? - 08-26-2009, 09:26 PM

Hey guys, I finally found some sort of money to mod my Mini. I've got a few problems with memory with what to get and what not to get.

Which memory would be the best in terms of performance for the Mini 9? Also is it possible if i can buy two 2gb RAM sticks and put them in the Mini to make it 4gb in total?

Thanks.

unfortunately, there is a 2gb limit - and there is only one slot for the memory module to fit - so 2gb is going to be your limit. I do not recall exactly but I believe that I stuck in PC2 6400 200 pin memory (2gb stick) from Newegg.com .....good luck

The Mini 9 has a single laptop-size DDR2 memory slot. Which maxes out at 2GiB.

As to performance, I didn't worry about it when upgrading. The Mini 9 runs its RAM at a slow 533MHz, regardless of the RAM's ability for higher speeds. And I didn't think it was worth spending more for low-latency RAM, which probably results in no perceptible improvement.
