Just like in previous models, there is space inside the Mac Mini for two standard 2.5" laptop drives. If your Mac Mini only comes with one drive (i.e. you did not get the Server version), you'll need our Mac Mini dual hard drive kit to install the second drive.

Hi, All the RAM quality is all the same, but you pay for the name Apple extra.

If you want a nice update of your mini RAM, kost only arround the 29,00 Euro for example 2X... (always 2 of the same type)

(Trancent) 4GB DDR3 1600 SO-DIMM

Apple uses also speed 1600, with a lower speed 1333 your mini wil also work.

But 1600 is nice!

Online shop in Holland:

Tip: Always when you open your Mac, use thin rubber disposeble handgloves for electric static dammage.

Good luck!
