    I have a June09 MBP with the 160GB hard drive. I want to get a Mac Mini and a 500GB HDD for the MBP. What I want to do is swap the 160GB HDD currently in the MBP into the Mini and then install the 500GB HDD into the MBP and do a backup via TimeMachine with Time Capsule. Would doing that cause any problems when the Mini/MBP backup to the TC?

    You might have to reinstall the OS once you drop the 160GB into the mini because the mini drivers may not already have been installed on the MacBook Pro version of the OS.
