Is it easy to upgrade the CPU in my MacMini2,1? It is easy in a non mac PC. Upgrading RAM in the 2,1 is not that hard from the videos I've seen. I have stock hardware in it. 1 GB RAM 1.83 GHz Core 2 Duo 80GB HD etc. I'm doing App development, and when I start getting a lot of pages in Storyboard in XCode 4, it slows the computer down a lot. I wonder if upgrading to 3GB RAM would fix that. If I could, I'd just buy the latest MacMini for $699 CAD refurbished through the education discount, but I don't have that right now. I think a 2.x CPU is a bit over $100 and I might have extra macmini compatible ram lying around somewhere.
