    I have a mac mini G4 with a 1.42 GHZ processor and the hard drive died. I also have an old G4 "Quicksilver with a 867 mhz processor. What would it take to take the processor out of the mini and put it into the G4.:confused:

    I don't know the ins & outs of the mini design but wouldn't it be easier to just install a new hard drive?

    Hang on, whoa, what the.

    Changing the processor will do NOTHING for the broken hard drive. Get a new hard drive, leave the incompatible and meaningless processors alone.

    The processor in the Mac Mini is soldered on.
