    Alright so I have a 2010 mac mini with the core 2 duo and since I have no need for the optical drive I would like to swap it out and replace it with a hard drive. I currently have a 60 gig vertex 2 in the hdd space. Does anyone know of how I would go about this? I know owc sells some optibays but none are indicated for the 2010 mac mini. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    By now you have probably found out how to do it, but you can look up on ifixit for the guide on how to replace the optical drive and use an optibay type housing to hold the second drive. OWC has a drive doubler (not sure if that is the name but something like that) which can hold the second drive. They are also found on newmodeus site.
