    1- CPU
    what type of chipset used in the Mac Mini mid 2007 (Model MB139LL/A)?
    is it the 945GM/E or 945PM?

    I ask because I have a Mac Mini with 2.0 GHz
    and I have a 2.5GHz CPU

    is it possible to use it in this mac? I'm willing to try if none knows, but just check if it's not possible at all!

    my CPU is: Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor T9300 (6M Cache, 2.50 GHz, 800 MHz FSB)
    Socket: PGA478
    Spec Code: SLAQG

    I know the Mac Mini goes with 667MHz system bus, and my CPU with 800MHz but still I would love to have it if possible :)

    2- Disks

    The Optical Drive does not work well, so I was thinking to change it to something better and I have 2 things in mind
    first connect a second disk with the help of a Hard Drive caddy Adapter
    second using the same updater to build an eSATA connector

    any ideas/suggestions to share?

    what do you mean you know it works? you mean the CPU with the Spec Code SL9SD will work and mine will not?

    may I know why? do you have more info (technical)?
    does the Spec Code "rule" apply on normal PCs as well?

    and in general what make the CPUs different if the Spec Code is not the same?

    Thanks allot :)
