I am going to buy a new Mini this week. The following is a series of dumb questions. (Although it has been said, "The only dumb question is the one you don't ask") Not sure if I'll get the low end or mid range model. I guess it will depend on the offered options, GPU, quad core, storage, price, etc. I would like to upgrade the RAM, 16 gig is $82 at Crucial. I can do that myself. I would also like to get a SSD, probably from Crucial as well, 128 gig about $116.00. I don't think I want to take that on. Any thoughts on who I could get to do the SSD install? I don't know how much Apple would charge for a SSD but I know it will be too much! If buying online from Apple does the Mini come with OS installed? Or do I have to download it? I would like to have a SSD and a HHD in the unit. Is it correct to have the system loaded on the SSD? I would also like to install Windows 7, what would the best way to do that? Partition the SSD and install Mountain Lion in 1 partition and Win 7 in another? I'm not even sure I'm asking the right questions so I'll stop here and see if I get any response, thanks.
