Hi, this question goes out to those in this forum who reside in Canada and have bought ram for their Mac minis online. I am looking for a reputable dealer within Canada, for ease of shipping. I'm looking to upgrade my 256mb ram to 1gig as it would be the most bang for the buck. I have read that many people have had problems with the ram they bought and installed in their Macs because the minis are very selective on the quality of the sticks.

I would rather not have to order any from the US companies who ship to Canada not only because of shipping but because of the exchange rate and I'd rather support the Canadian economy even if the company is american, no offence.

Query: (a) Name and Website
(b) Brand and Model

Thanks for any help rendered.

    If you go to the Kingston web site at, and in the upper right hand corner click on 'choose your country', on the main menu they give you an option to list Canadian retailers as well as Canadian online web sites. The direct link is

    Kingston, along with Crucial, are two manufacturers, who seem to consistently produce memory that works in our macs. Of course, you would use their recommended RAM strip for your mini (not Kingston's value line) - using Kingston's memory finder, that would be, for the G4 mini, part number KTA-G4333/1G.
