    Ok so looking at a Mini for a media PC instead of getting a Refurb ATV, but is it easy to replace the HDD, I see the video on YouTube and ifixit but it looks kinda difficult.

    Just curious if anyone has bothered to replace the slow 500GB 5400 RPM drives.

    Given what you posted, I'd say stay away. It's not for the faint of heart. It's not particularly difficult, but it's definitely not easy. Easy is when you don't have to take anything apart and put it back together again, without breaking anything.
