Just like the top left photo left of "never miss this moment with..." Except 16gb instead of 64gb in the picture. I got it off ebay only 1 month used a few days ago. Works great. Super fast 95mb a second read.

Confirmed... Mountian Lion installed to a sd card and boots. Runs great. No lag. Internal reader not usb or firewire. Mac mini 2.3ghz i5 8gb ram 2011 bought on July 23 2012.

Now time to run benchmarks. What is the best free bench mark program that works both 10.7 and 10.8?

So maybe that's the future for people mainly running windows on their MacBooks ?

Geekbench on 32 Bit trial is a great free benchmark app. The 64 Bit is paid, though. But it's definitely worth it. Look at the bright side, you have paid for a $1000 machine, I'm sure $20+ wouldn't even pinch.

My mini was only 529 dollars.
