to 1G baby!
I just went from 512MB to 2GB in my Intel iMac... gave it a nice little speed boost!
how much improvement are you noticing? I'm thinking about upgrading mine as well
It's great! Things open up a lot faster. It boots a little quicker (of course, it's only been once as mine stays on for a week or so). I like the improvement. Well worth the $100. However, the labor was a bitch. I used the putty knives like some of the folks I have seen do it elsewhere. They make it look easy I swear. But, it's done and I'm happy.
I did a Gig and then went to a 7200rpm HDD. That made mine pretty good
should have done it with wires instead of a putty knife, i heard that turns out better
hold on, let me search dl.tv they did a short segment on one of they're shows, it was kinda interesting
i'll be back soon
heres the video, not quite as informative as the forums link below, but you get the point, its on channel 2
and the forum link
i can't believe no one has heard of this before?
I used a pizza cutter to install 1GB in my Mini Intel. Worked just fine. I dont think I have the patience for the wire method.
I used a kitchen knife to upgrade mine. I was careful and did it with no scratches or anything.
For the person that said they upgraded to the 7200rpm drive, is it worth it? I have stock hdd and 1gb ram 1.25ghz ppc
Yea, it added some much needed "snappy-ness" to the package. I upgraded to a gig of ram, and that was nice as far as keeping programs open and the such, but the 7200rpm drive really added to the overall speed. I did some small video editing on it the other night and it was pretty decent. Until I started the encode process, that took forever!
What I'd like to do is get an Intel Core Solo Mini and then slap a 2.0GHz Duo, 2Gigs, and a 160GB 7200rpm SATA drive into it. That will be a niiiiice speedy system!
