    4 shares
    In my last tutorial I showed you how to upgrade the RAM in your Mac mini. Whilst you have the lid off, or now that you know how to get into the machine, you might like to make another modification that will help extend the viable functional life of your Mac mini. As shown previously, despite being – to all intents and purposes – sealed boxes, it is possible to upgrade these devices in order to further their useful lifespan. With a Core 2 Duo processor, upgrading the 80 or 120GB hard drive to, perhaps, a 500GB HDD brings the machine up to a more modern specification capable of housing large iTunes and iPhoto libraries. In this tutorial, I’ll be showing you how to upgrade the hard disc drive (HDD) in your Mac mini. For the purposes of the tutorial, I’ll be using a Mac mini Core 2 Duo machine, model A1283.Read More…

Despite being – to all intents and purposes – sealed boxes, it is possible to upgrade these devices in order to further their useful lifespan. With a Core 2 Duo processor, upgrading the standard 512MB or 1GB RAM module to, perhaps, 4GB or 8GB RAM brings the machine up to a spec capable of running OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. In this tutorial, I’ll be showing you how to upgrade the memory (RAM) in your Mac mini. For the purposes of the tutorial, I’ll be using a Mac mini Core 2 Duo machine, model A1283.Read More…
