I helped a friend with her Macs recently and she gave me one of them, her “brand-new” mid-2007 Mac Mini 2,1 —Core 2 Duo, 2.0 GHz, 120GB HDD, —now with 4GB RAM (really 3GB) which I upgraded myself. It had Tiger 10.4 installed and I also updated it to 10.6.8 Snow Leopard. According to MacTracker it’s 64-bit and still supported and can go up to Lion, but I’d rather have ML or SL rather than Lion, so sticking with SL. It’s “brand-new” because my friend bought it new in late 2007 but never unpackaged it, set it up or anything. Well, it did also have a new Mac smell somehow when I set it up, everything was still covered in that peely plastic. The only real quirk is with the wifi antenna. When I first set up the Mini (and I hadn’t yet opened it up to change the RAM) I had a lot of trouble getting it to recognize the home network. It just kept rejecting it outright, or begrudgingly remembering it once I managed to get it working. Then one morning it was great. All bars, no problems. AT. ALL, it just hooked up to the wifi network on its own & I was able to get massive amounts of updates downloaded. Unfortunately since then, it either only gets 2 or 3 bars max. Or it sees the home network but says it can’t connect. I used Migration Assistant to move over my friends files and programs from a cloned image (2006 Core 2 Duo iMac). —Just wondering if something from that disk image could be wonking things up. In the meantime, I have also wiped the HDD and reinstalled fresh copies of Tiger and Snow Leopard. Still some problems with the WiFi and then I reinstalled my friend’s data again. So, advice needed regarding this wifi problem AND (if I have to go through the pain-in-the-butt of opening this Mini up again to check out the antenna) I’d like to upgrade the HDD to something larger than 120GB, so I’d really appreciate advice about that too, please. I think the limit is 1.5TB for this model?? And I'm not sure whether to keep this just for CS3 or as a HTPC. Heh, this is the cute little Mac Mini <3 of my dreams back in 2007-2009.
