Two Hour '11 Mac mini Second Drive Addition.

I'm just glad everything worked.

Pretty straight forward and if I had my other hand, I'm sure I could've done it faster.

T'was my first "real" upgrade on a system that wasn't mine. Started sweating with the owner of the mac mini sitting next to me (really good friend, so not a big deal really).

Surprisingly easy and a really good learning experience. I hope one day to get certed for Apple hardware.

Anyways, those of you thinking about doing it yourself, do it. Just go slow and take your time. Definitely do NOT rush it.

Sure. I lost my left arm when I was 15.

So, it takes me a little longer to do things with this small (I'm 6' 6" and 335lbs) little computers. I have one huge hand and dealing with the small IR wire took the longest.

Wow that's very inspirational, thank you. I am looking at doing the same install soon and I was a little worried about my ability to do it and I am feeling much more confident now.

Thanks. I seem to be very inspirational on different sites.

My favorite activity now is powerlifting.
