i got from a friend thier old 2010 Mini (sported the P8600 Core 2 Duo) i gave Windows 7 a try via bootcamp and omfg No. Too pokish on stock CPU/Ram to be usefull. Looking into it it uses the BGA479 (SocketP) and the wiki on the Socket type itself Shows "Intel Core 2 Quad Q9x00" for Support. anyone know if this generation of Unibody Mini "Can" support a Q9X series Core 2 Quad? and for Ram, i can get teh hint while it looking to the Wiki page for Mini Models shows it supports upto 8GB but it doesnt state if 4GB Support is only by a 2x 4gb kit or if a single 4GB Memory Module could be used. im not looking to store a crapton of apps/music etc so its 350GB HDD is fine. (besides stuff would either be loaded of Network or from my 2TB External) To add to it its running Yosemite what would be better suited for this Mini ?
