Three notes from the tear down: 1) The screws are tiny. In other words, most people won't be able to do this with what they have in the garage. 2) The CPU was really in there tight. I tried to pry it off with no luck. 3) This Mac mini is really, really well built. It feels like less of a brick (like the last one) and more of a laptop without a screen.

Still wish they kept the price down. Always like to see an industrial design refresh, but other than that, I don't see anything compelling in this new design that justifies a $100 bump.

Are they standard Torx screws? I'll be absolutely upgrading the hard drive in my 320GB 5400rpm model to something fast. Any ideas, people?
