Mac Mini Surgery: Success!

Apple Hints

Well, I ended up purchasing a mac mini (custom build) and a 23″ Cinema Display. (Why the mac mini? I am not happy with the G5 line as of yet) Anyways, there was no way I was going to let Apple put a gig of RAM in for me for over $300 when I could buy it for $125. So, when I oreded the mac mini, I ordered it with 256mb of RAM and ordered the extra RAM from I found some good take apart guides and just as I was going to head out to Home Depot to get a putty knife, a friend of mine messaged me and asked me if I had seen the “wire trick”.

I was not too excited about scratching my new computer so I gave the article a quick read. I was instantly intrigued and decided I better give it a try. Within fifteen minutes, my mac mini was taken apart, and ready for the new RAM. A few snaps back in place, and I was restarting! Thanks J for the tip!

P.S. Before you put the mac mini back together, make sure you remove the wires…or you will have to take it apart again to remove them. 😉
