does the AMD mac mini support a second harddrive?

Yes, though make sure to look up installation instructions online. (there are at least a couple videos on YouTube on installing a second hard drive in the current Mac mini)

If you're going the two HD route, I recommend this kit:

All of the parts, tools, instructions you'll need. Excellent price too - I didn't want to have to hunt down the correct rubber gromets, screws, tools, etc.. Everything for $45 + $3-$4 shipping plus a very detailed instruction guide, I doubt I could have done better.

Yes Indeed

Yes you can, I did mine on friday night.

I bought the kit mentioned above from OWC ( cable and tool kit ) as I couldn't get it easily in the UK.

I have to say its worth the money and the addition of either an extra drive for either raid or a ssd boot drive is superb.

There's not much room inside the Mini but its well worth the effort IMO.

Go for it!
