I've researched a bit and saw that this little guy could be upgraded to quite the mini beast (beast compared to what it is now). The current one I have is: http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/mac_mini/specs/mac_mini_cd_1.83-specs.html Core Duo (T2400) 1.83ghz to T7600 SL9SD 2.33ghz Core2Duo 1gb ram to 4gb ram 80gb hd to 120gb ssd Firmware update 1,1 to 2,1 Searched around and the best post I came across is from 2012: http://forum.netkas.org/index.php/topic,874.msg15441.html#msg15441 Hoping someone here could confirm the following steps and products are still optimal to do this. My plans are to have this as a small media center with Kodi. Also will be using it as a workhorse to download stuff on. Will mainly be VNC'ing into the machine to control it. Thanks for any help!
