Try some independent Mac dealers, if you need it this wknd. Or you can get it mail order in about 2 days. Just shoot for RAM that is guaranteed Mini compatible, you don't want to play musical chairs with the Mini RAM.
Did you try RB Computing (www.shoprbc.com) they have usually had RAM or hard drives in stock when I need them. They can order stuff in too...usually in 1 business day. I usually shop there, because they have great prices (Compusmart, Futureshop, and Bestbuy have laughable prices for their RAM usually, and its always some generic brand, and they don't believe in 1gb sticks) and they're located in Ottawa (Oh where oh where have all our Mac stores went?)
When my fist clenches, crack it open...
I went to pc cyber , crawford another pc cyber and checked everbest, network supply, sprint, tte, flat planet, fedacom, deals direct ,oem and Mooney's Bay.
The PC3200 1GB (2 X512MB) DDR400 kits are what they had in stock.
That's just bizarre.
Too bad we're not closer to you, we keep, like, 30 pieces in stock at all times. Granted, we cater to Mac owners, but still, 2 Gb and 4 Gb kits are some of our biggest sellers. Wonder what's going through the heads of those sellers above?
When I upgraded my Mini in June, it took over a week for my 1 GB Kingston RAM to arrive. Apparently the distributor was out of the item. 1 GB in a single DIMM is still something a bit exotic when the average new computer comes with 512 MB of RAM, which is more than adequate for many/most users. And a single 1 GB DIMM generally seems to cost more than a pair of 512s. So the real issue here is the Mini's single RAM slot obligating us to use memory that's harder to come by.

I'm in Ottawa and have dealt with most of those sellers. What's dancing through the heads of those sellers, are Visions of Microsoft! Many of those sellers have an Apple line just to keep their foot in the door in case of a big, Apple-buying explosion. But they don't yet seriously serve us shiny-faced Mac users.
