Recently successfully completed an SSD upgrade for my late 2012 Mini. It was relatively straightforward, although not without risk of snapping and breaking connections and connectors. I also have an early 2009 Mini, and wonder if those who've done that model can compare SSD upgrade difficulty factor with the 2012. My 2009 is running extremely slow and think it'll need a drive upgrade very soon, and SSD could do wonders for it. Also any SSD recommendations for early 2009 appreciated. I've read the Samsung 850 EVO 1TB (which I used for my 2012) may not be a good match for this model.
