wedge Cracking the Mac Mini

* Good article on MacWorld
Mac Mini: Inside and Out
* the official word from Apple is that the Mac mini’s RAM is user-upgradeable, “unless you break something when you open it.”

* Use two thin putty knives to push in "fingers" around 3 sides of case. It is "loose" on the back.

* 1GB DIMM online for $160-$180. Apple wants $425??

* Conclusion. Not hard, but not easy.
