    I have purchased the Crucial 4 GB kit, and I am installing my great Hitachi 320GB 7200RPM 16 MB Cache drive, is there possible anything else I can do to tweak more performance out of my Mini, although I must say for what this thing is, it performs great and the fact it runs Mac OS and not Windows is a great thing. The funny thing is with boot camp this thing runs faster then some of the newer desktops I was playing with at BestBuy, I just wish they made a 9600GT Nvidia GPU version like the MBP it would be killer then.

    I have actually been using it so much I am selling my new Uni MacBook for lack of use.


    Thanks

    Your two upgrades are all you need. :D I'm sure someone can help you spend your money though.

    The only other thing you could do is remove your SuperDrive, replace with another 7200 RPM HDD and RAID 0 the two drives to have one faster, bigger drive!

    Probably void your warranty though....

    32MB Cache would be quicker. SSD would be even quicker!

    An SSD primary and an external firewire hard drive would be many times better.
