    I have a core duo 1.66 mac mini. I've read a few posts here on the forum and someone even PM'd me a guide/howto for replacing the cpu.

    I came across a T7400 ES ?? Is this the same as a regular T7400 or is there something about the 'ES' that will prevent it from working in the mini?

    That's an engineering sample of the processor. Macs have had some problems with processor variants that other OEMs use. (e.g T555x/575x) It should work though.

    The T5550 is a Socket P chip. The mini uses Socket M.
