Open your Activity Monitor, and check your System Memory -- if you're starting to see "Page Outs" greater than 20% of your "Page Ins" during normal use, you should consider this ultra-cheap remedy! For those folks who want the ultimate in performance and consider this price to be "pocket change", if you're seeing *any* Page Outs, go for it!
To make sure this is the right memory for your Mac, open your System Profiler and look at your existing "Memory" entry to make sure that your system will use the 667MHz DDR2 RAM. Paying extra money for RAM that's spec'd faster than your system can take advantage of may not be the best use of your money!
The installation is a breeze on a MacBook like ours. Power down, remove the battery, remove 2 (really small!) screws and the shield they hold in place, pop your old memory out using the two levers, then reverse the process with your new memory. Power on, and check it out! Get back into Activity Monitor to see your RAM usage, or check with System Profiler to make sure it's all there.
You should be careful handling the RAM -- don't touch the metal contacts, only pick it up by the edges, and always make sure your other hand is in contact with the metal in your MacBook when handling these SoDIMMs to prevent any static jolts to the chips.
Pop out, plug in, and rock on!
Update: This memory also improved my Mac's video quality. It helps videos play more smoothly. YouTube videos aren't as jumpy and lo res videos seem clearer. Speaking of YouTube, there are some good videos about how to open a Mac Mini to replace the RAM and hard drive. If you go to the trouble of opening your Mac Mini, it might be good to replace both the RAM and hard drive at the same time. Then you only have to do it once. I replaced my factory 80gb hard drive with an OCZ Onyx 64gb SSD. It boots much faster now, it's quieter and runs cooler too.
By the way, I've seen other reviews about Mac's with memory upgrade problems. Make sure to order the right type of memory. My Mac had DDR2 PC-5300 memory, so I ordered the same type. Some reviewers say DDR2 PC2-6400 memory doesn't work in older Intel based Mac's that came with slower DDR2 PC2-5300 memory. The easiest way to tell is click on 'About This Mac'. If it says 667 MHz then you have PC2-5300 memory. If it says 800 MHz, then you have PC2-6400 memory. I stuck with the same type PC2-5300 memory and had no problems at all.
