2GB sounds like maybe a 2010 model....? To check for sure, go up on the menu bar and select "About This Mac"


Then go to either OWCmacsales.com or Crucial.com and order the Max amount that is listed for your model.

It's very easy, you do not even need tools to install RAM modules in the 2010 thru 2012 Mac Mini's.

The A1347 model is the Mid 2010 model, the maximum RAM would be 16 GBs.

I would recommend OWC as source for the RAM: https://eshop.macsales.com/shop/memory/Apple_Mac_mini/DDR3


Note that your biggest performance increase would be to replace the slow 5400 rpm hard drive with a SSD drive.
