BEFORE anyone says anything, yes I know there might be a new Mac Mini announced on September 12th, or even just casually updated in to the product range over the next two weeks but either way, I am buying a Mac Mini. It will either be whatever new model they bring out or the current generation if they do not. Few! Hopefully that is the "don't buy one yet!" types made happy. Now, I really hope to use all the clever peoples knowledge on here to recommend what products to buy to upgrade the current generation Mac Mini. I was originally looking at an all singing, all dancing model with Apple fitted 8GB of RAM and SSD. Now, looking at guides like this, I can see I can save about £400 by upgrading the HD and RAM myself. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkaRS6w5l1o <- Makes it look so easy... So now I just have some questions. I am a novice at computers I am afraid and I will be using a technical friend of mine to help fit everything: 1. Is there a limit to the SSD Hard drive the Mac Mini can take? You can get 512GB SSD HDs for quite a low price but it is bigger than the Mac Mini can come factory fitted with, so I just want to make sure it can take it. 2. Are there any specs on SSD speeds? I assume that better drives can react faster, what am I looking out for? 3. If you were upgrading yourself to either a 256GB or 512GB drive, but primarily, you were looking for speed, which hard drive would you pick? 4. RAM - Again questions, whats the best RAM for Mac Mini? Thank to everyone in advance for your help. I'm looking to get a future proof Mac that will last me for many years.
