I have an early Mac Mini and I'd like to add another 1GB of RAM before I install Snow Leopard. No warranty. I've added memory to towers and am handy with a screwdriver but not much more than that. Money is no object :D and I just want to get it done quickly, like tomorrow.

Question: should I do it myself or bring it to the Apple Store?

I personally would never buy additional memory from Apple. There are several do it yourself guides (http://www.o0o.it/mini/) explaining how to add memory to the Mac Mini Intel Core Duo models, if you're handy with a screwdriver, and own (or can buy) the right tools for getting the case of the Mini open, then I'd say you're best off doing it yourself.
