    I belong to two mac mini forums, this one and 123macmini.com

    Seems that site is gone or not accessable for some reason. Anyone know anything? Thanks

    I think it had been mostly inactive and neglected for a couple of years. Now that Apple has made the Mac Mini un-upgradeable, there probably isn't any reason to maintain and nurture that site. But maybe it's only offline temporarily.

    Looks like it is no longer accepting posts to its forums. Sad to see the site have a slow lingering death.

    This is unfortunate. I actually really liked the community over there. (was heavily active when I first dipped my toes into the Mac world with the G4 Mac mini and then with my first Intel-based Mac mini (a CoreSOLO CPU).

    I posted there more then 1000 times. But as apple killed the mini I stopped posting here and there.

    I come back here once in a while to complain about the mac mini. But I will have to move on. Shame I used to like that forum and this one a lot more when the mini could be played with. I must have sold 200-300 upgraded 2006-2012 minis. Oh well Looks like the 1984 Apple commercial came true and Apple ended up as the villain.

    Hi Philipma... can you riddle me the problem of the 1.5gb negotiated link speed SSD bottleneck on the 2009 Minis? Just put a brand new Crucial BX200 in a 2.26... did the "power but no data" trick for several hours. It registered 3.0gbs at first, but then reverted to 1.5gbs negotiated link speed.

    Been so long since I dealt with that. The answer is on the 123 mac mini forum. But if the forum is down not much we can do. I modded a lot of 2009's and there was a way to put in ssds's. I must have posted 100 geek bench marks on 2009's I did get 3.0gb speed on some but not all ssds' back in the day. I can't remember if you needed to use the dvd connection vs the normal hdd connection.
