    I want replace the HDD with a Samsung 830 64GB SSD in my Early '09 Mini. Is it a simple drive swap or do I need a 3rd party cable and/or bracket?

    Cool. I love it when it's simple -- or as simple as it gets on a mini. Thanks.

    If you wanted to keep the HDD in the Mini and to replace the optical drive with a SSD then you'd need a 3rd party bracket.

    I'd suggest you take a look at ifixit.com. There are some good free guides there for upgrading the Mini.
