Hi all, I am looking into buying a base model mac mini, I live in the UK and would be buying the 2.26ghz 2GB model. I have a few questions about modding the mini. If you could answer them it would be massively appreciated. 1) SSD upgrades - I heard that SSD's die quicker than HDD's. Is this true? How long will one last? 2) Is a hybrid setup possible? For instance having say a 32gb or 64gb SSD for boot drive and applications, and storing all other files, documents etc on an external firewire or USB drive? 3) If this is possible, then does installing the SSD have any effect on the machine? Any risks of it getting too hot or anything? I have a small room which gets very warm, and I don't want to make it run hotter than it should. Any other dangers? 4) What are really fast SSD's that are reasonable cheap and compatible with the mini? I heard Intel are better than OCZ. 5) I assume that putting an SSD in there voids the warranty. What upgrades are accepted? I heard apple allows a few. 6) If the SSD does die, will all my files be safe if they are on a separate drive (if you can) Thanks for your time.
