Possible or not using a standard PCIe SSD?

Hi,

idea is buy a Mini with only HDD and install later a standard PCIe SSD (Crucial for example)

Have you planned to design an adapter from PCIe Apple connector to standard PCIe SSD ?

No adapters, proprietary means - impossible to find. If you want the SSD buy it as OEM.

If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.

Can anyone confirm that this part number will fit: 821-1506-B

It looks like it is the same.

Did you look at the tear-down? "However, this empty socket over here may well be a spot for a PCIe cable, enabling the installation of a blade SSD."

More on this once we get our hands on a Fusion-equipped Mac Mini.

Hum would say, we need at this time buy a PCIe OWC or Apple SSD, what i wait is to see if it's possible to find adapter to install standard PCIe SSD (as Crucial or other brand).
