    Hello,

    I've had my 2010 Mac mini for 6 years now and have never had any issues. It currently has an SSD in it and I would like to place that SSD in a 2012 Mac mini without having to reformat it. Is this possible? Would I be able to install it to the 2012 Mac mini and just start using it? Thanks.

    I'm actually on the El Capitan beta version 10.11.6 on my 2010 mini.

    I have a souped up 2012 and want to step down to a 2010. I no longer need the power and am short on cash. Lets make a deal!
