    Morning

    I have my shiny new Mac Mini, and whilst I think its fantastic. My main aim is to run Itunes and stream movie\tv shows to the multiple Apple TV's in my house.

    To this end I need to upgrade the HDD

    Can anyone please confirm if this drive is OK.

    I am happy to then do a completly clean install of the OS and all of the relevant Apple Updates as I only really have this machine as an Itunes Server.

    I would also like to increase the memoory to maximum, so any recomendations would be appreciated.

    Any advice would as always be greatly appreciated.

    Yeah, that hard drive should work just fine in your Mini. Seems like every time I turn around those little 2.5" drives are getting bigger...

    For memory, Crucial is always a good bet.
