    Hi guys!

    Inspired by MKBHD's Fastest Mac Mini YouTube series (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOBRNrn32tE&feature=list_related&playnext=1&list=SP66E94CED9D2D2E7D) I'm looking at upgrading my 2008 MacBook to a new Mac Mini in the next month or so, and have a quick question about hard drives.

    Along with 8gb RAM from Crucial, I'm planning on putting in a mean old 240gb OCZ Vertex 3 SSD in the Mac Mini. Now my question is regarding the HDD the Mini ships with - can I put that HDD in my Macbook? Will there be any compatibility issues?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Yes, as long as it's a Serial ATA 2.5″ drive, should work in both. I would expect NO compatibility problems but I'd format the drive when I get it in the new machine.

    Yeah, I'll need to format the drive - here's hoping I can maybe create an image of Lion from the Mac Mini so I can upgrade HDD's and OS while I'm at it :)

    Thanks!
