      Hi phillipma1957 -- looking for the best SSD for Mac mini 2010 and also 13" 2011 Macbook pro... do you have any and/or have any suggestions? Also need 16gb ram for the 2010, what do you suggest? Is the newer speed DDR3 ram compatible with a 2010 Mac Mini?

        Sorry I don't do much with macs anymore. The 2010 mac mini needs older ssds It is sata II not sata III. It has a lot of small BS wires and is not that easy to put an ssd into it. It also is really picky with ram samsung 4gb sticks worked well and 8gb ram is kind of the max. Frankly I would sell the 2010 mac mini and get a 2011 or a 2012.

      Hi, firstly sorry to bother you but i want ti sum up your post about the seagate thunderbolt adapter, ill list a few questions if thats ok.
      1. i can buy a second hand free agent go HDD and replace with a 240gb ssd and this will fit nicely with the t-bolt adapter
      2. the t-bolt adapter seems limited to transfers about 350MBps (the drive i want to buy goes unto 550MBps)
      if you can find the time to reply this would be great...
      thanks matt

      I just wanted to let you know that my friend has been running the 10.7 GM for a week now on the machine that we did your mod on and it is working flawlessly.
