Use 3.5-Inch Hard Drive With Mac mini
If you are looking to boost the performance of your Mac mini so you can start doing things that the Mac is known for - power user software - then you should know that the hard drive is slowing you down. Even if you max out your RAM, the 5400 RPM laptop drive can just be sluggish at times. Now, you can just go with an external firewire drive, but that can be expensive. Arthur Whalem of the Arizona Macintosh Users Group has put up a nice guide to modding the Mac mini so that you use a standard hard drive, which rests outside of the unit, to pick up speed. It’s not the prettiest thing in the world, but it works.
