    I was looking at getting a Samsung 830 256G SSD drive. I was browsing OWC and see there are two 256G SSD drive. An Internal and a Notebook. The Notebook drive is considerably more than the Internal. Unless I'm missing something, they look the same.

    Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

    I don't know why everybody is so excited about getting this Samsung model from OWC. Save yourself $50 and get some other brand from Newegg.

    I think there is a drive height clearance issue with the Mini and you need to make sure the drive is shorter than 9.5mm (check me on this) but otherwise any 2.5" SSD will work.
