Apple typically charges much more for RAM than third party vendors. Installation at an authorized Apple dealer around here is $30 if you buy the module, or $45 if you bring your own RAM for installation.

When looking at RAM, make sure it is tested and guaranteed compatible with the Mini (get this in writing), a goodly proportion of PC Generic RAM is not compatible, even though it is "PC2700" or "PC3200".

You can install the RAM in the Mini yourself, you need two flexible-blade putty knives (it helps if you grind the edge to a point too). There are videos and instructions on the 'net you can google for.
