Good Day All! My Mac mini died and I found it was 2010 Mac Mini and not a 2008 Mini as I had previously thought. I slummed it and went on GumTree a British website that I think is similar to "Craigslist" where I found a broken 2010 Mac Mini for sale for £50. I haggled and got the price down to £20 and off I popped with my Mini hoping to bring it back to life. Having watched my brother do it countless times I was fairly certain I could handle it. However there was nothing wrong with the machines hardware the HDD had been corrupted and a clean install of Mavericks which I had on USB fixed everything; I felt kind of guilty actually... You can see the specs above I've removed the serial number for obvious reasons: Processor - 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Memory: - 4GB DDR3 RAM Graphics - Nvidia GeForce 320M 256 MB HDD - 500GB Toshiba Hard Disk Drive OS - OS X 10.9 Mavericks I know I can't do anything about the CPU and GPU and I am not sure that upgrading the RAM would be worth the £60 it would cost me (your thoughts?) I do have a Samsung 850 Pro 512GB 2.5 inch SATA III SSD that my Brother left at our house. He said I was free to use it for Linux purposes so I will try to install it to my new Mini. I don't have any of the tools and the tools kits on Amazon have mixed reviews. Does anyone know where I can get a "proper" set of tools that would be suitable for Apple products and or most computers? I don't minding paying a little bit more say £30-50 if I had to as it would be an investment. Thank you. Clara Edit: I do have an external Blu-ray drive that I use with Macs but as I'm opening up this Mini anyway would it be possible to replace the disc drive with another slimline slot loading drive that isn't riplocked?
