    Hi. I'm planning to buy a Mac Mini that just came out and wanted to know if the non-server version of Mac Mini supports two internal hard drives. I have two ssds from another computer and want to install them both in a software RAID. Do both versions have two hard drive slots or just the server? Thanks.

    it has the slots for two drives but you will have to buy a data doubler kit from ifixit or owc to get the sata cable and install it

    It certainly does.

    Both iFixit and OWC have verified the layout is the same. I have already bought my OWC kit.

    is there any advantage of the OWC kit over the ifixit kit?

    I would venture to say if one is less expensive than the other, then that is the better option.
