    Haven't visited in forever, unfortunately! Anyway, simple question.

    Can I upgrade the processor in my 2011 Mac Mini? I'd much rather upgrade this and then downgrade it when I'm ready to sell, instead of buying a whole new computer.

    So is it possible to upgrade the processor in a 2011 Mac Mini? It's the 2.3 Ghz i5 build.

    Thanks!

    The processors in 2011 Mac Mini's are soldered in and cannot be upgraded without professional tools and great skill.

    Ahh. Alright, thanks.

    Are any Mini's upgradable?

    The CPUs in the 2006 and 2007 Mini's are upgradable.
